Todays educators have a vision of where they want to take their institutions. Its a clear image of high-tech classrooms, cutting-edge labs and unprecedented access to information. The question for them is not where they want to go but how to get there, especially in light of other concerns such as administration, curriculum and budget constraints. As schools and universities address these challenges and overhaul their practices and teaching methods to change with the times, the right technologies, implemented correctly, will help educators deliver the skills that students need to succeed.
Right now, schools, colleges and universities throughout the world are implementing powerful network infrastructure solutions to create better learning opportunities, raise learning standards, reduce costs and improve security. Maximizing the performance of their networks, not just individual PCs, these institutions are investing in their network infrastructures from top to bottom, deploying ever-faster, highercapacity connections for simultaneous voice, video and data.
The resulting uses range from typical classroom activities such as word processing, database and spreadsheet usage and various curriculum applications to more bandwidth-intensive applications such as online learning supplements, streaming video to the desktop, video teleconferencing for virtual field trips and facility management applications such as surveillance, security and climate control. Some schools have gone even further, implementing cutting-edge capabilities such as campus-wide wireless access, voice over IP and gigabit to the desktop.
Of course, educational institutions and IT departments are always expected to do more with less thats a given. Fewer people to manage more equipment with tighter timelines and lower budgets these are all serious challenges to the effective operation of a network infrastructure. Choosing the right network infrastructure physical layer solutions at the outset can help overcome these issues.
