Added to this, we also managed to increase the speed of communication between the cores, becoming 25Gb”
“We have once again placed our trust in Megastar to achieve a better data flow in the network, ensuring continuous operation and better management of the campus network system. We are now prepared for future demands for network connection points” highlights Martínez.
