MozCom Announces NetConnect Academic Bundle
Mar 31, 2008 — Mozcom announces the availability of the Academic Edition of its NetConnect premium broadband Internet connectivity service targeted specifically to education institutions. Schools availing of this special package not only gets Mozcom’s tried-and-tested connectivity service and technical support, but also all the tools necessary to manage the network effectively.
“No matter how much bandwidth you connect to your school’s network, it is never enough,” said Dick Chiang, Mozcom COO/CTO. “Existing users will just keep consuming all the bandwidth unless schools actively control the types of network traffic that they will allow, and how much of the total bandwidth to allocate to them.”
The Academic Edition comes with a bandwidth manager, a firewall, and commercial anti-virus software — all at no extra cost. “You normally have to pay a small fortune to get all these features. But we believe that these are integral components of any school’s network so we bundled it in,” Chiang added.
Schools also have the option to avail of Mozcom’s network audit service for free to determine if their network is vulnerable to attacks from the outside. They also have the option to avail of a free video-streaming session for any of their events, such as the graduation.
