Intrinsic Technology wins first class Oxford University Press project
Intrinsic Technology has won a contract to deliver a major data centre network and core network refresh to Oxford University Press (OUP).The publisher, a department of the University of Oxford, is the largest university press in the world. Intrinsic Technology has worked with OUP for four years, but this is the largest project yet. A data centre network upgrade and new switches will ensure faster and more reliable communications across the entire OUP network, and provide flexibility for future expansion.
Intrinsic Technology’s engineer created three bespoke design options for the switch upgrade. The core switches at the publisher will be replaced, ensuring that OUP is deploying the latest hardware. Further switches will deliver enhanced functionality and reliability.
Adam Jarvis at Intrinsic Technology commented, ‘Oxford University Press is a world famous institution and we have enjoyed working with them over the past four years. To be selected to deliver a project of this prestige is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire team.’
David Smith, group IT director at OUP, added, ‘We’re one of the world’s oldest publishers but have to keep looking forward too. Intrinsic’s solution will simplify and streamline our infrastructure at the same cost as our previous system, and set us up flexibly for the future.’
