What makes a college campus “smart”? A smart campus uses the internet of things (IoT) to link devices, applications, locations and people to enhance and enable new services while improving operational efficiency.

It starts with reliable wired, wireless and mobile connectivity everywhere on campus, indoors and out. At CommScope, we understand that ubiquitous connectivity is just the beginning. By sharing a common technology enabled by our Ruckus Smart Campus solutions, campus IT infrastructure and disparate operational systems can interact to transform student living, learning and safety.

RUCKUS outperforms others in an independently-validated Wi-Fi stress test.

Challenges and opportunities

Smart campus living

Students want a connected living experience including mobile apps, personal student networks for privacy, parking spot location, campus traffic maps, in-building wireless and more.

Smart campus learning

By integrating physical campus spaces with digital capabilities, students have instant access to real-world data to study and apply to their projects, whenever and wherever it’s convenient.

Smart campus safety

Build a complete campus security system with multiple components—lighting, surveillance cameras, alarms, smart ID cards and more—all working together to keep everyone on campus safer.

Smart campus operations

Extend IT visibility and control to utilities and campus assets, and manage them more efficiently—with real-time monitoring and proactive, automated infrastructure management.
