Concurrent Session C
It’s all about the learning experience and the learning experience is all about the network
The campus network should not get in the way of the learning experience. It should be invisible to staff and students yet inevitably the network is blamed for everything. Aruba is at the forefront of applying machine learning and Artificial Intelligence to the network to make it more reliable, more secure and much easier to operate. This session starts by taking a look at what a modern campus network should look like and then shows how the application of AI to the network improves the learning experience.
