Academia Management Solutions International (AMSI) has partnered with Nortel to improve its broadband mobility and multimedia capabilities with an IP network across its International School of Arts and Sciences (ISAS) campus.
The IP network will provide all communications services such as VoIP, multimedia and WiFi broadband mobility to the entire Dubai campus. The new integrated voice and data IP network will support AMSI's “Notebooks for Books” (N4B) project. The school's initiative has completely transformed classrooms into multimedia wireless learning centers where teachers communicate directly with students via their laptops wherever they are on campus. The N4B initiative has replaced traditional chalk boards with interactive whiteboards and school textbooks with eBooks accessed from laptop PCs. Nortel is providing Ethernet Routing Switch (ERS) portfolio, which enables Terabit performance and network-wide delivery of applications like VoIP over 10-gigabit Ethernet.
