Ashoka University selects Juniper Networks to support wold-class liberal arts education in India

Juniper Networks today announced that Ashoka University has selected Juniper Networks to provide the network infrastructure to support its ambitious goal of growing tenfold in the next five years. The university, which is breaking the mold of higher education in India by aiming to be a world-class liberal arts college, is also setting a new benchmark with cutting-edge network technology to accelerate learning and strengthen collaboration.

Ashoka University was founded by a group of successful professionals, entrepreneurs and academics who are focused on developing education programs that help students think critically, communicate effectively and become self-aware and socially responsible. In keeping with its world-class ambitions, Ashoka University is building world-class facilities at its 10-hectare campus at the Rajiv Gandhi Education City in Sonipat, 20 kilometers from Delhi.

The new, privately-endowed institution deployed a complete campus network infrastructure running on Juniper Networks Junos operating system. The combination of Juniper’s switching, routing and security platforms, tightly integrated under the same management system, will greatly simplify the task of scaling the campus network over multiple phases as Ashoka University goes through its planned tenfold growth in students over the next five years.
