Back to School Means Demand for More Bandwidth at Universities

It’s time for back to school and with thousands of college students entering or returning to universities around the country, schools are facing a new challenge to their networks. Gone are the days when students finished classes for the day and gathered around the television to watch their favorite programs or pop a movie into the VCR. They want to watch what they want to watch when they want to watch it.  The rise of students using online streaming to view television shows, movies, etc. with Netflix is causing a major strain to university networks. Schools are seeking out ways to meet this increase in bandwidth usage, including moving to a direct fiber connection to provide the bandwidth they need to meet the increase in demand from their students. Check out this article in Network World that ran this week about the University of Massachusetts and what they are doing to address this issue. http://bit.ly/RqTKNY.  

Then check out Wolfe’s fiber connection solutions like Wolfe Business Internet . With bandwidth ranging from 10 Mb/s to 10 Gb/s, the bandwidth challenges of online activities like streaming on Netflix are no longer a network strain. Wolfe Business Internet provides the speed, scalability, security, and reliability for these new network requirements.

More and more companies and schools are recognizing the need to upgrade their networks to prepare for and meet the changing technology demands of their employees, students, customers, etc.   Is your network ready?
