Case Study: Reading University

As one of the world’s top 200 Universities, and in the UK’s top 10 most research intensive, the University of Reading enjoys a world class reputation. In early 2014, the University’s IT Operations Manager, Dr Andy Gatward, approached gbics.com® regarding Network Infrastructure refresh projects for their Whiteknights and Greenlands sites. While open to a third party solution, the University was determined to choose a brand that would offer the same quality and standards of vendor branded products, without compromising on compatibility. Here at gbics we jumped at the challenge. Read the full case study below:
