The Advanced Computer Technology (ACT), which specialises in the field of integrated solutions, has completed its implementation of the first phase of The Knowledge Hub project, for the benefit of El-Sewedy Education, with a total value of EGP 6m.
According to a press release issued by the company, the Knowledge Hub project is the first educational project implemented by ACT in the New Administrative Capital (NAC) for the benefit of international knowledge universities, affiliated with El-Sewedy Foundation for Educational Services.
Act has prepared the infrastructure based on the latest modern technologies from HPE Aruba to provide data centre services and wireless internet connectivity to facilitate communication between teachers and students on the one hand, access to scientific and educational materials via university networks on the other hand, and provide connectivity and Internet access within all halls through a package of integrated solutions.
In this project, an integrated system was provided to secure, protect, and connect wired and wireless networks to students and faculty members at high speeds to deliver electronic scientific content, access from inside and outside the campus, and automatic checking to ensure access to digital content using the latest technological systems taking into account all the necessary security methods to protect this content and open communication channels.
Hazem Mansi, CCO of the enterprise sector at ACT, said that the first stage of the project took three months to complete and was delivered. The company also trained the employees of the project to use the solutions and technologies that were provided to the university building, which includes two colleges, one of which is to study engineering and the other to study computers and information, which comes in cooperation with the University Coventry -one of the most prominent British international universities- and through this project, supplying information security and protection systems as well as the university’s data centre solutions with HPE Aruba solutions that include Clear Pass and Air Wave.
Mansi added that the university started to receive students during the current academic season starting from October 2019 and is planning to complete the rest of the buildings within the next two years, bringing the total capacity of the university to 50,000 students, where the laboratories and classrooms were equipped with Internet technologies.
The goal of establishing knowledge universities is to provide high-quality educational services in line with Egypt’s vision for sustainable development 2030.
