Non Stop Secure Connectivity in Todays Digital Learning Environment
Students arriving on campus today have lived their entire lives as “digital natives.” Smartphones and social media providing information at their fingertips and instant contact with anyone, anywhere—this is the world they’ve always known. They now carry multiple Wi-Fi enabled devices and expect 24x7 connectivity. To make this possible, you’re going to need Wi-Fi—strong, reliable, easily accessible Wi-Fi, anywhere, anytime on any device with automatic connectivity.
Security is also an important requirement, with the increase of attacks on large networks growing at an alarming rate, robust security and password integrity is more important than ever. Secure and simple on-boarding for student, faculty, staff and guests with appropriate network security access policies based on device and role is a high priority for the IT department. How do you balance these requirements of high security with simplicity of use?
Join our presentation to see how Ruckus will present some innovative solutions to help solve this problem. Driving new uses for Wi-Fi technology on the campus as well implementing some of the new innovations in the market, including the new 802.11ax standard, location services and IoT technologies ensure you remain competitive. While delivering your students with a high-performing, uninterruptible, mobile network that just works.
