Future-proof Network Elevates Student Experience
The surge in smart devices, digitized teaching, changes in student learning and IT consumerization are all driving the demand for better campus Wi-Fi. Schools must rise to meet this demand to attract and retain students else risk losing out to betterequipped campuses. As students and teachers work together to drive learning and achievement in the classroom, they need a technology infrastructure that is simple, reliable and offers hassle-free access to digital engagement in campus life.
Western Sydney University has eight major campuses located in the western part of Sydney, Australia. The eight campuses are situated over 18 square kilometers with over 550 buildings, 10,000 rooms with the university serving 43,000 students and 5,000 staff.
To take full advantage of everything that the university has to offer, all stakeholders need access to a reliable Wi-Fi network. Western Sydney needed to upgrade its legacy infrastructure to ensure that the IT department didn’t start receiving complaints from students and staff.
