Young in Network World Fusion

Brian Young, vice president for information technology and CIO, was quoted in the article “Bandwidth: Quality over quantity?” in Network World Fusion. The article discussed the size bandwidth used in networks and quality-of-service technologies which ensure priority to certain applications. “You're always going to consume whatever bandwidth you have,” said Young. Increasingly sophisticated students bring more bandwidth-hungry gear to campus each year, so he needed a way to prioritize who gets how much bandwidth when. To do this, the Colleges use Enterasys gear.
