As the existing network infrastructure in schools, learning facilities, and on campuses continues to age, it becomes more difficult to meet the increased demand for connected classrooms or smart campuses. The list of activities taxing today's education network is long and diverse. Activities such as online assessments, cloud-based applications for collaboration and learning management, online video conferencing for remote lectures and faculty collaboration, and the use of IoT devices for enhanced learning all strain the network infrastructure.
Moreover, the adoption of BYOD policies, increased IT security needs, reliable online content delivery, and mobile learning initiatives add to the network load.
By escalating the use of distance learning into the mix, it is easy to see that most networks are being pushed to the edge of their capabilities. While these are common problems, they need not be a barrier to reliable, secure, and worry-free delivery of education.Embracing Change for Enhanced Learning
