University Gains Increased Network Control and BYOD Ability

UNI needed a highly reliable switching infrastructure that could handle the demands for secure, predictable network access, and service their dynamic and demanding audience.

With more than 4,600 students living in the University of Northern Iowa’s 10 residence halls, access to reliable and fast Internet connectivity is paramount.

Maintaining this level of excellence requires continual upgrades to the University’s infrastructure to meet student and faculty needs. One of the most critical upgrades required by higher education institutions is updating its network to meet the bandwidth demands of today’s devices and applications for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments.

With the continual upgrades to the University’s infrastructure to meet student and faculty needs, the solution scaled to support multiple devices and applications for BYOD. The solution provide UNI with a high-quality, reliable, and secure network that not only services students’ current bandwidth demands, but can keep up with emerging technical and academic needs.
