Innovative technology shapes learning, teaching and collaboration within education. It must be user-centric, engaging and support both staff and students, whether through their academic progression or personal well-being.
In a digitally enabled landscape, higher education institutions compete for students in the same way high street retailers compete for customers. To attract the best and brightest, universities and colleges are looking to technology to provide a differentiator. At the same time, staff and students need access to applications, resources and flexible connectivity wherever they are working and from whichever device they choose.
With our skills and expertise in mobile, high-density environments, we can deliver a wide range of vital solutions to higher education institutions; including core networking, voice solutions and affordable, secure cross-campus Wi-Fi.
Students, faculty and visitors alike expect campus-wide wireless irrespective of the device their using to connect with. Always-on connectivity has become a necessity supporting accessibility and inclusivity. Users want to authenticate once and be free to roam from halls of residence to lecture theatres, canteens and student unions without drop-out.
Bandwidth demands can be extreme in crowded campus environments, with hundreds or thousands of concurrent users looking to make the most of hi-definition video, collaboration, learning resources and social media. This can put a strain on wireless networks.
We understand the scalability, security and performance challenges of wireless deployments within educational environments. We offer expert consultancy and design to transform the student and staff WiFi experience. Our specialist wireless surveying and deployment teams ensure we deliver reliable solutions with enhanced coverage and continuity of service.
Mobility is key within higher education establishments where users expect a great networking experience in challenging environments. Students and staff are constantly on the move and demand campus-wide connectivity. Whilst connected, users need to be kept safe from inappropriate content and malicious applications, yet still have access to the learning resources social collaboration tools they rely on.
Our Wi-Fi access control solutions enable IT administrators to provide highly controlled, differentiated wireless connectivity to multiple user groups including staff, students and guests. Individual user profiles can be defined for specific groups, devices and locations. Users can quickly log on and gain access to the resources they need, whilst in the background, IT departments ensure security and performance of the network.

To provide students, faculty members and other network users with the performance and availability they demand, IT departments need to understand exactly how their network resources are being consumed. What applications are being used? What devices are used to access the network? Where and when is access required?
We provide educational institutions granular and meaningful analytics across their entire network infrastructure. Our monitoring solutions gather data to provide a holistic view of your environment with proactive performance monitoring and alert systems that highlight issues before they impact the service.
Detailed network usage data and reports deliver insight into how infrastructure and application resources are used across your sites. This information enables your network to be optimised for the best applications performance and quality of service for users, providing them with an improved experience.
In today's higher education establishments, iPads, laptops and other mobile devices are as commonplace as textbooks and remote working is standard. Devices need to be identified and secured while accessing network resources to optimise IT support, ensure compliance to security policies and improve the delivery of educational services.
Our comprehensive analytics and security solutions can provide essential visibility and insight into the devices or endpoints, enabling you to protect your network and staff, student and guest users. Network Access Control, Secured Internet of Things and User Activity Monitoring support your IT governance, risk management and compliance; including the ability to measure the effectiveness of IT operations, support, and security from the perspective of the end-user.
Higher education establishments desire modern, cost-effective and resilient communications solutions which can flex up when there are peaks in demand during Admissions and Clearing periods and maintain service continuity should issues arise. Meanwhile staff and students want feature-rich technology that allows them to choose the most convenient communication device and method for them with access from campus or home.
Our powerful Voice and Unified Communication tools enable collaboration across campuses and remotely, providing a single user interface which seamlessly switches between a chat to an audio/video conversation. We can offer additional survivability features to support business continuity and disaster recovery, ensuring minimal disruption to business as usual activities.
