Wireless Solutions for Higher Education

Where Wi-Fi Enables Learning

Modern learning environments are powered by technology and the wireless network needs to enable staff to work, and students to learn, from anywhere and on any device. This can be a tall order, especially when you have a large campus consisting of a wide range of different environments, from cafeterias, to libraries and halls of residence.

The resources drawn together on this page are designed to educate, inform, and inspire wireless professionals to build robust and resilient campus Wi-Fi, in order to improve learning outcomes.

Campus Wi-Fi Supports:

  • Staff
  • Students

Mojo Cognitive WiFi is built to meet the needs of Higher Education environments in the mobile-first era. It replaces the need for outdated controller-based hardware WLAN solutions which are costly to maintain and difficult to troubleshoot.

Deeply intelligent and immensely scalable, Cognitive WiFi applies artificial intelligence to the wireless network at a degree that is only possible by harnessing the limitless computing power and storage capacity of the cloud. The result is a brilliant self-driving network that enables university and college campuses to achieve stellar network performance and unsurpassed data protection, while reducing IT costs and minimizing network troubleshooting time.

Monitor & Troubleshoot

7SIGNAL

Students, professors and administrators grow increasingly frustrated when they experience network delays and slow throughput because it hampers their ability to teach and learn. The usual set of WLAN troubleshooting tools may help isolate and fix issues on a particular day, but do nothing to assure, track and proactively monitor the quality of the Wi-Fi experience for students and faculty moving forward.

7SIGNAL’s platform is a unique Wi-Fi performance management system that allows you to continuously monitor and proactively manage the end-user Wi-Fi experience. It’s time to stop wasting time and energy chasing down issues all over campus.
