A team of NJIT graduate students recently placed second at the Juniper Networks Hackathon on Feb 2. NJIT was the host school. Teams from Rutgers, NYIT, NYU/Poly, and U.Penn participated, with the U.Penn team placing first and the Rutgers team placing third. On Jan. 26, teams were given a challenge to manage network congestion. One week later the teams presented their solutions. Teams also attended sessions where they learned about innovation and tools to manage software defined networks (SDNs).
