Higher Education

Colleges and universities strive to provide a top-notch education and safe learning environment for their students while facing challenges to recruit the best and the brightest students and faculty with shrinking budgets and minimal government support. Technology is the key to addressing these challenges and necessary to transform higher education.

Delivering a high-quality education and standing out among other education institutions will require technology to deliver services such as 24-hour access to class and library information from any location, the ability to provide collaboration and lectures from industry leaders, remote professors and world leaders and remote and on-demand courses from any location at any time. Providing an interactive learning environment with media-rich curriculum using computers, television, electronic libraries and the Internet will further enhance the quality of learning while creating a competitive edge.

Just as critical as the education, is the security and safety of students, faculty and staff. Unfortunately we are increasingly faced with student violence, vandalism, bomb threats and even natural disasters. Creating an integrated communication, physical security and surveillance solution increases security services and enhances safety on campus by preventing, deterring, detecting and better responding to incidents. Security gaps are minimized, communication to students, faculty, staff and surrounding communities are improved and first responders can better react and respond quickly to events.
