Educational institutions are at the forefront of WLAN deployment, as widespread campus Internet access is a necessity for teaching, administration, and research. Increasingly, widespread wireless access is necessary to meet the high expectations of students who spend much of their day online, both to support their studies and to engage in social networking.
Beyond ubiquitous Internet access availability, other trends are driving a need for high speed transmission links to serve the campus environment. From K-12 schools and districts to geographically distributed colleges and university campuses, the growth in collaborative programs, distance learning, video conferencing, off-campus LAN connectivity, video surveillance, and disaster recovery initiatives is highlighting the need for a secure, easily deployable high speed interconnect architecture to ensure service availability.
