What Can Great Wireless Do for Higher Education? (Part One)

July 23, 2015

It's been a much-discussed topic over the last several years: What can a great wireless network do for a college or university, and what separates great wireless solutions from those that are just ordinary? Wireless networking can enhance flexibility and productivity for students. Also, an excellent network is an important attraction for students who are considering a college or university. A well-functioning wireless campus can include a number of benefits, including:

  • The ability to have anywhere, anytime access to resources across any building or outdoor space on campus; instructors can deliver lessons outside of the classroom, including field lab settings
  • E-learning becomes a lot easier; instructors can complement classroom instruction with online activities. These may include Video on Demand (VoD) and video streaming to build a more integrated learning experience
  • Communication improvements through providing campus-wide access to online communication tools such as email and discussion boards; wireless networking is also great for team-building across multiple disciplines
  • Wireless technologies allow universities to better support research objectives and academic mission by creating a more creative and collaborative learning environment

These are only a few benefits of what great WLAN can do for your students and your overall institution.
