NEW YORK — November 20, 2017 — EfficientIP, a leading provider of network services, today announced Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), an internationally acclaimed private research university in Massachusetts, USA, has selected its SOLIDserver™ DDI (DNS-DHCP-IPAM) solution to streamline its network infrastructure.
WPI delivers all network communications to a demanding user base of approximately 2,000 graduate and 4,000 undergraduate students, along with 500 faculty and 400 staff members who need access to network communications 24/7. The selection follows a competitive review in which vendors were analyzed on ease of integration, cost and customization.
For over ten years, WPI used a powerful IT network system called NetReg developed by Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). However, due to a lack of development resources this project stagnated and was abandoned by CMU in 2008. To ensure campus network communications including routing, switching and wireless, as well as core services such as DNS and DHCP, continued to function, WPI needed to find a best-of-breed solution with good integration.
