Example Projects and Information

Dell Medical School – Building a network to improve community health

Our team provided rapid network design and provisioning for over 2,000 ports across three new buildings while working to address the complex unique needs of UT Health Austin Clinics' network and VOIP-phone configurations. Our expertise and collaboration with ITS ensured UT Health Austin Clinics launched with networks that addressed the needs of Clinic staff and physicians, as they embarked on their mission to provide high-quality healthcare for all.

Network patching expertise in complex, innovative UT buildings

The Liberal Arts ITS Network & Voice team worked to develop a detailed patch and network allocation plan for the state-of-the-art Engineering Education and Research Center (EER) building. Our team patched 2,300 ports across the building's network closets to meet current network standards. We worked closely with the Cockrell School of Engineering during building construction to identify, escalate, and resolve network build-out issues with the contractor, ensuring Engineering staff could focus on other aspects of technology in their innovative new building.
