The New Test for K-12 Education: Accelerating Broadband Access
Is Your School Making the Grade on Network Bandwidth?
Education leaders understand that to prepare students to excel in a knowledge-driven and networked economy, schools must improve the performance of their own networks. According to a recent analysis, 8 out of 10 of K-12 schools are not meeting current goals for Internet bandwidth and 6 in 10 percent do not have enough WAN bandwidth.1 Because K-12 bandwidth demand is growing at more than 50 percent per year, schools without a roadmap for network upgrades are at risk of falling further behind.2
Find out how innovative K-12 schools are boosting network capacity to support essential education applications, including 1:1 computing and BYOD, digital content and curriculum, online learning and assessment, as well as learning management systems, social media and cloud services.
