ICT implementations help them deliver services to stakeholders.

Daejeon University of Korea is leveraging ICT implementations from F5 Networks to deliver services to stakeholders.

Prior to the implementation, the university was struggling with the tardy performance of apps and an infrastructure that ran a higher risk of falling victim to cyber-attacks such as Deface and DDoS.

The proliferation of smart devices created massive strain and challenges to the network infrastructure of Daejeon, hence the university deployed F5's load balancing and web application firewall solutions to address the challenges.

"In the past, accessing our university website, online lectures and information is slow and frustrating. It is common to encounter system errors in attendance, page loads of courses and examinations," said Daejeon University's student, Hye-Soo Kim. "Today, students and staffs no longer face the same issues when taking online courses and using the university website."

Reliable IT infrastructure

The F5 Application Delivery Controller (ADC) solution has been able to efficiently manage and secure massive traffic and ensure reliable IT infrastructure. 

The solution allows the infrastructure to scale intelligently in a secured and agile manner to meet the growing traffic and user expectations.

Thanks to BIG-IP Load Traffic Manager, Daejeon University has been able to improve its network performance which in turn improved page load times and the user experience.

Also, the entire user experience is protected with SSL performance encrypting. A less complex infrastructure has enabled the university to reduce operational cost, CAPEX and OPEX.

"Daejeon University now enjoys a more efficient IT environment and reliable service delivery with F5's technology and will look forward to more benefits in the future," said the IT manager, Kang.
