UKAEA went to tender under the JISC framework agreement to find a new supplier to support a new high-throughput, core network infrastructure. Of the twelve suppliers that were approached with the Request for Proposal (RFP), five responded - one of which was Vanix, a highly skilled systems integrator and Extreme Networks Diamond Partner, specialising in high performance networks. With extensive experience in networking
and security in the public sector, Vanix (part of the Ampito Group) is an approved supplier for the JISC Framework.
As part of its detailed tender response Vanix proposed a future proofed and resilient core and edge switch and routing infrastructure built around the Extreme Networks platform for UKAEA.
