3Com Corporation (Nasdaq: COMS) today announced that the Royal Thai Navy
(RTN) selected 3Com to upgrade its administrative LAN. The investment,
which is approximately $1 million, extends RTN’s relationship with 3Com
as its preferred networking vendor.
The new state-of-the-art system will keep up with rapid growth of users,
and their demands for faster response times when using online
applications. The new network backbone consists of 3Com core switches
between the RTN's headquarters in Bangkok and its Sattahip naval base
supported by an optical fiber cable WAN network.
"We require the most reliable and stable network solution to support the
Navy’s very large and distributed IT network across the country,” said
Captain Suchart Nutchanart, Head of Operations, Naval Electronics
Department of the Royal Thai Navy. "Since we have been working with
3Com, we have been very impressed with the performance and reliability
of their technology as well as their excellent after-sales service,
which includes training programs for our staff. Another reason for
selecting 3Com was their ability to meet our requirements within a
budget that represents great value for our organization.”
The new network effectively delivers 10 gigabits per second of bandwidth
across the backbone network, and gigabit speeds across the distributed
network, a significant improvement over the Fast Ethernet (100Mbps)
speeds in the old network. It supports a wide range of applications,
including electronic archiving, human resource management, financial
management, supply management, and other in-house applications.
The 10-Gigabit backbone network is powered by 3Com® Switch 8800 core
switches. These intelligent, multilayer modular LAN switches are ideal
for enterprise environments where nonstop availability of critical
applications and the highest performance, security and granular control
3Com Switch 5500 distribution switches with single-mode fiber-optic
links were deployed in 10 other locations. These were later upgraded to
the higher-end 3Com Switch 7700 switches to support faster gigabit-speed
connections. The 3Com 7700 modular LAN switches deliver high
performance, multilayer, 10-Gigabit, gigabit, and Fast Ethernet
switching, with available Power over Ethernet (PoE) support.
