With the most technology-savvy students in history, higher education institutions are under mounting pressure to elevate both students and their campus networks. The average college student uses bandwidth-hungry laptops, smartphones, tablets, game consoles, and MP3 players constantly, for life and learning. A majority of institutions employ bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, encouraging students to connect their gadgets to campus networks. Today’s students cite the quality of campus technology as a major factor in enrollment.
To meet the needs of these “digital natives,” fast and reliable Internet access throughout campus is fundamental. Keeping students connected anytime, anywhere—residences, campus common areas, academic and administrative spaces, and dining facilities—is essential.

The explosion of online education options, as a supplement or replacement for classroom learning, is also driving a need for stellar connectivity and high-capacity bandwidth. Many students are blending or complementing classroom studies with video learning, online content, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), e-textbooks, and digital content downloads.
