ADTRAN, a leading global provider of networking and communications equipment, donated more than $16,000 in network equipment and long term tech support to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The equipment, which includes four NetVanta 3120 with Enhanced Feature Pack Software; three NetVanta 1335 Layer 3 switches with WiFi; two NetVanta 1224 24-port switches; one NetVanta 7100 VoIP PBX with integrated switch and router; and five IP501 VoIP phones; will be used for courses in information networking and technology, and information security, as well as for the senior design class.

Stacey Givens of ADTRAN leads the effort to make the equipment available to Auburn University, and the equipment was presented by ADTRAN's Brad Tidwell in October 2007. Additionally, Mark Freeman provided training material for the donated equipment.
