Roehampton Selects FibreSpan

LONDON -- Roehampton University has selected FibreSpan, the premier provider of private dark fibre networks, to extend its storage area network between dispersed campus sites.

Based on dark fibre, the new network will provide secure, high-speed, dedicated telecommunication links across a geographically-distributed IT infrastructure. The five year contract comprises a multi-core dark fibre network that will link four campuses, with scope for future expansion and additional resilience as required.

The network is due to be deployed in July 2007 and offers the University a highly flexible, reliable and cost-effective way to deliver secure communications between its sites. It will appear as a single transparent network, enabling users to communicate and share applications seamlessly regardless of location.
