The technology focus in higher learning has shifted. Institutions are no longer primarily concerned with connectivity. The need for colleges to provide connectivity is a given.
The new focus is capacity. From the connection through to the backhaul, bandwidth has become king, measured in gigabits, not bars. The question for any institution today is: Are wired and wireless networks supporting the demands of end-users, programs and staff?
The National Center for Education Statistics projects that college enrollment will grow by 14% through 2022. The competition for new students will be fierce. There is no demographic more tech savvy than college students, and a University’s technology platform will be critical to their efforts to attract new students. Only by aligning themselves with a technology partner will Universities or Colleges stay ahead of the curve.
Vision has the experience and expertise to adapt to new technologies, as well as update the infrastructure of higher learning institutions to ensure they remain modern for students and faculty alike.
