Schools and universities around the world are discovering the value of digital transformation in education—reducing costs while enabling students and educators to connect, create, and share on any device. By connecting every facet of campus facilities, applications and systems, institutions can transform their traditional campus into a safer, smarter, and more cost-efficient learning environment.
Every successful smart campus initiative requires a robust, intelligent network to serve as its foundation. With ever increasing number of students attending schools, universities and other education establishments, the increase demand to establish a sophisticated and reliable campus educational network has never been greater. Not only does the network control security and alarm systems to ensure a secured and serene learning environment, it also manages campus broadcast system, video/audio teaching system as well as environmental systems such as heating and air-conditioning. Depending on this intelligent campus network which provides fast, secure, reliable connectivity to a multitude of applications, devices and resources, institutions can realize smart campus goals such as engaging and educating, ensuring safety, reducing operating costs and increasing revenue.
