Today’s higher education learning environments are evolving and growing at a rapid pace with more students and faculty accessing and utilizing online content than ever before. For universities, this becomes a challenging environment, trying to meet the growing demand for bandwidth with fixed budgets and IT staffing levels.
At UAX, an estimated 84% of students and faculty access the network every day and the network often supports over 2,000 concurrent users at any given time. With demand for bandwidth growing 35% annually and over half of all users complaining about the speed of the network, UAX needed to find a new Wi-Fi solution. That solution needed to be able to scale with their growth, be easy to deploy and manage, and align with their budget constraints.
