UTS Insearch rolls out network modernisation to deliver a seamless student experience
Seamless Wi-Fi is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ for educational institutions, but a core foundation on which digital curriculums and connected classrooms are built. Today’s connected student uses multiple devices simultaneously including laptops, tablets, smartphones and e-readers and expects to do so with instant connectivity and consistent speeds.
However, behind every strong Wi-Fi deployment, having an equally strong, wired network is crucial. While students and educators alike are increasingly connected to networks via exclusively wireless means - mobile phones, tablets and laptops, educational institutions still heavily rely on direct wired connection to the network for desktops, VoIP devices and other IoT devices, which remain central to any higher education institutions’ missions and is crucial to student satisfaction.
