Higher Education: Enhancing Digital Learning with Network Amenities

Abstract

Over the past five years, states have cut higher education spending by an average of 28 percent. Colleges and universities are charged with growing revenue from a variety of sources, including student tuition, grant-supported research and fundraising. Given the financial implications, it is hardly surprising that college administrators rank attracting and retaining students as their top priority.

In a recent survey 92 percent of high-school students engaged in college selection cite technology as an important consideration in their enrollment decision. The quality of the campus network experience is naturally a prime concern for today’s connected collegians.

Whether for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) support, video learning and online classes, e-textbooks or digital content downloads, campus networks are the lynchpin of today’s higher education experience. The connectivity demands of the most tech-savvy student population in history place new pressures on colleges and universities to stay ahead of the bandwidth curve. Not only do investments in network capacity enhance the campus learning experience, they also drive the institution’s bottom line. Broadband capacity is an essential ingredient in supporting student enrollment and retention, academic scholarship and research, as well as new revenue opportunities for higher education institutions.
