Five Focus Areas to Improve Campus Interoperability
Schools are expected to keep students safe, focused and supported. Enhanced security in response to increasing health and safety concerns, is an additional challenge for educators while keeping students engaged in the classroom.
By addressing the foundations of campus interoperability, you can build security system convergences, agility for budgets, scalability for demand and flexibility for technology choices. This approach focuses on five key technology areas and integrates innovative solutions to meet your assessment and deployment needs.
Higher education facilities contain complex areas that require special attention and integration into an overall risk management strategy. A 24/7 crime prevention and public safety strategy is crucial to proactively maintain a safe and secure environment.
There is an increased demand for multipurpose areas that can be configured for different activities and controlled for comfort, safety and efficiency. Flexible facilities enhance the productivity of students as well as faculty and staff.
A high-performance structured cabling system plays an essential role in operating a modern campus environment, including new learning models, wireless connectivity and increased bandwidth requirements.
Enabling the internet of things on campus allows you to analyze your environment and make real-time adjustments to improve productivity and efficiency.
Adequate bandwidth and wireless coverage is needed to support the new ways people consume information, mobile device dependency and innovative learning environments.
