Florida Atlantic University Connects Researchers to Resources with Comcast Business

March 16, 2018

Comcast Business enabled cross-campus research and collaboration for FAU students and faculty.

Founded in 1964, Florida Atlantic University (FAU), is a research-driven institution with 30,000+ students and more than 180 degree programs. Including its main campus in Boca Raton, Florida, the university has six campus locations throughout the state, including Dania Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Davie, Harbor Branch and Jupiter.

FAU’s extensive research program allows students and faculty to come together to collaborate and share information about big discoveries and breakthroughs in the humanities, science and medical fields, among others. But without reliable network connectivity and sufficient capacity to facilitate massive data transfers between its major research campuses, students and faculty at FAU were unable to share research, data and analysis from one campus location to another.

With help from Comcast Business and the installment of a 10 Gbps Ethernet Private Line (EPL) connection, students and faculty can now work seamlessly across the three campuses (Jupiter, Harbor Branch or Boca Raton) and can securely access and transmit data across a private high-performance network. Students and faculty can now easily share and collaborate on research activities across fields of study, like oceanography, both within the FAU network and with other universities. Read the case study.
