University of British Columbia, one of Canada’s top three universities, is one of the customers currently using the NCX Enterprise solution. With an IT network supporting approximately 75,000 users, the university has chosen to leverage Anuta’s network services virtualization architecture to help deliver highly scalable, next generation network services.
