As existing network infrastructures continue to age in schools, learning facilities, and on campuses, it becomes harder to accommodate increased demand in the connected classroom. The list of activities taxing today’s education network is long: greater need for IT security, access and activity monitoring, learning via social media, the use of multimedia as a default, streaming video employed both as an instructional method and as a tool for faculty collaboration, flipped learning, gamification as a lesson component… the list goes on and on. Throw the escalating use of distance learning into the mix and it’s easy to see that most networks are being pushed to the edges of capability. Though these are common problems, they need not be barriers to reliable, secure, and worry-free education delivery.
By integrating physical school and campus spaces with digital capabilities, students and staff on the modern campus enjoy instant access to lessons and data.
