The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) was founded in 1978 to prepare talented students for professional, creative careers in art and design. With multiple locations in the southeastern United States and abroad, as well as online distance education offerings, SCAD offers more degree programs and specializations than any other art and design university.
To keep pace with an ever-expanding matrix of campuses, SCADs IT network must be both flexible and scalable. For example, SCADs flagship location in Savannah, Georgia, currently consists of more than 60 facilities spread throughout the city, with more than 100 miles of fiber linking these buildings. At the same time, these sites need to link with the new digital media center in Atlanta.
By leveraging networking solutions from Brocade®, SCAD is able to meet the performance, scalability, and flexibility requirements for a next-generation enterprise campus network, while minimizing overhead costs.
