Enhanced Campus Network Helps Students Get Ready for Digital-First World

The University of Management and Technology aims to build a positive and successful learning environment where every student is developed to their fullest potential. The ability to readily adapt to any changes in the digital world 4.0 and become a global citizen are just some of the achievements students strive towards.

To cater to the unique digital needs of both staff and students, UMT implemented a wide-capacity platform using ExtremeWireless solutions, providing users reliable, secure access to learning content and applications hosted in the cloud. Students and faculty at the university’s new campus facilities, which opened in October 2022, benefitted from new Wi-Fi 6 access points that delivered the best possible wireless experience.

The university’s wireless upgrade was supported by Extreme’s standards-based switching platform, which enabled IT to seamlessly expand its wireless network in preparation for the addition of new facilities and campus expansion while minimizing impact on the student experience.

“The quality of the Extreme Networks solution means we can focus on our faculty and students and their learning needs.”
