The smart campus
Build a connected campus to transform work, learning and safety
Today’s smart campus network is built on a foundation of connectivity designed to increase productivity, efficiency, learning, and safety. Reliable high-speed fiber rings, inside plant fiber, PoE (power over Ethernet) and powered fiber create a solid infrastructure for Wi-Fi, cellular and IoT network coverage—inside and out. Converged wired and wireless management solutions simplify support, enhance network performance and make everything easier to use.
More than a vital IT asset, the campus network—and all it enables—reflects the vision and values of the organization. Whether you’re building a smart university campus, smart medical campus or smart corporate campus, CommScope helps you shape and transform the future.
Challenges and opportunities
Universal connectivity is the primary requirement for a smart campus, supporting all manner of users, devices and applications. It includes a campus-wide network featuring copper and fiber backbone; ubiquitous wireless coverage—Wi-Fi and cellular, indoors and out; high-speed switching and reliable powered fiber; plus, the vision and experience to bring it all together.
Safety and security
Nothing is more important than safeguarding the welfare of employees, guests and students. Safety on the smart campus relies on an interconnected network: IoT-based sensors, intelligent lighting, smart locks, video surveillance, and campus-wide Wi-Fi, IoT and cellular coverage.
The technology behind a robust smart campus infrastructure is incredibly complex. Managing it shouldn’t be. A converged access network simplifies campus WLAN and LAN management, while integrated IoT networking eliminates independent network silos. Scalable switching and structured cabling let you easily and smoothly expand without having to rip and replace. Automated infrastructure management efficiently manages moves, adds and changes while ensuring minimal downtime.
Connected edge devices
Every campus is different, but all face a common challenge: how to power and connect a variety of remote devices to ensure network dependability and physical safety throughout the campus. CommScope’s smart campus solutions make it possible without intruding on the environment.
