Universities give the 802.11n go ahead

August 26, 2016

Universities in general were already swaying towards the likes of Wi-Fi, but it’s North American Universities in particular, that are heading the early implementation of the new development that is, 802.11n.

Of course, it’s still early days, and the current education market penetration is only at 2.3%, but this does represent a good level of interest and incorporation for such a new product.

Universities are turning to the 802.11n option for similar reasons as the Wi-Fi adoption, which happened due to the fact that educational institutes have the need to be able to accommodate a large amount of users at once, but also to offer maximum security, incorporation of video technology, and keep in line with current quality standards and expectations.

Video in particular has already become an important feature of educational institutes worldwide, providing the option to easily replay a lesson or seminar, covering topics students missed, or didn’t understand, without having to bore the rest of the students who are ready to move onto the next topic.

The ability to view these videos anywhere on campus is also essential, allowing students multiple locations to be able to catch up on lost time.
