Chinese university to utilize IBM to produce virtual campus

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Xi’an University of Architecture and Technology, one of China’s oldest universities, has installed a computing solution based on IBM PureSystems. The school intends to use it to help improve education services offered to students and to launch the university’s Digital Campus platform and student Campus Card.

The new system will provide the backbone for the secure use of the university’s campus card which will be used as an electronic purse by students to pay for expenses on campus, borrow books at the library and enroll for different activities.


“To stay ahead of the ever changing demands of today’s students, who require constant access to the university’s virtual campus, we decided to launch the Digital Campus platform and provide a Campus Card especially tailored to the needs of our student communities,” said Li Longji, director of the school’s Network Center.

The computing IT system provided by IBM helps the university provide cloud-based applications needed to support the Digital Campus services such as authentication, wireless management and connectivity to both the Internet and to the university’s campus network, which will provide students with online access to administration, learning and collaboration processes. [end]
