Personalized learning. Digital curriculum. Advanced collaboration tools. Maximizing every student’s potential can max out your network. The demands placed on K-12 broadband networks by web-based educational tools and mobile devices in classrooms often exceeds most K-12 broadband network capabilities.
When fueling student learning potential, the right network is everything. Continued investment in network infrastructure helps sustain support of new learning initiatives, and in turn improves student outcomes.
Scalability over time with minimal incremental investment supports high-bandwidth requirements and growth projections that exceed 10 Gb/s. As aggregate bandwidth grows, average cost decreases.
Capacity and performance optimization empowers students and staff with access to the resources they need to maximize success.
Simplification of application delivery and a robust management system allows districts to support all phases of network operation: network planning, provisioning, monitoring, alarms, troubleshooting, advanced diagnostics, and inventory management.
The evolution of education will have a significant impact on your broadband network. Ensure your educational technology initiatives successfully improve student outcomes. Ciena can help you explore your district’s network requirements today and into the future.
Recent E-Rate funding changes added new options to consider and created an unprecedented—and potentially short term—opportunity to build the next-generation K-12 broadband network. There are three basic options for your broadband network:
E-Rate program changes and growing demand for larger amounts of network bandwidth are causing K-12 districts to evaluate whether to deploy dedicated, private fiber networks or continue to buy managed network services for Internet access and district WANs.
It’s time for a new broadband strategy. K-12 broadband networks need a clear strategy for investing in and transitioning to a more open and dynamic infrastructure that balances new initiatives and current network service support. By proactively building a high-capacity network vs. implementing incremental changes, the increased demands of wireless technologies, mobile devices, and high-speed connectivity can be met. Start planning your path to a high-capacity next-generation network solution to enable anytime, anywhere broadband access for students and staff.
Annual bandwidth demand for K-12 broadband networks is projected to grow 50% year over year. And multimedia, digital curriculum, more connected devices, and increasing demand for 24x7 access to education content and instructional tools are having a...
Networking infrastructure upgrades was one of the top 5 digital priorities identified in the 2016/2017 Center for Digital Education Digital School Districts Survey. This comes as no surprise considering the survey also found increasing use of mobile ...
Today, we’re talking about digital education in general – how schools can provide it, the tech investments they need to make to support it, and how to find available public and private resources to fund the investments, including E-Rate.
Students excel when your network does. When fueling student learning potential, the right network is everything. Download this infographic to learn how the evolution of education technology will have a significant impact on your broadband network.
