With the growing number of connected devices on college campuses, IT teams are challenged with ensuring there is sufficient bandwidth to meet students’ needs. Still, networks are strained.
If you’ve been following our blog, you already know how Optical LAN improves college campus networks. From ensuring that the network can handle the skyrocketing bandwidth needs during streaming March Madness games to supporting the large number of connected devices students use, Optical LAN has already transformed campus networks.
For modern businesses, LAN uptime is essential. When unplanned downtime happens, employee productivity and critical data gets lost, which costs businesses a lot of money. Gartner estimates that cost of network downtime per hour for large corporations is $42,000, with annual losses exceeding $3.6 million.
Today’s modern organizations are looking to deploy wireless systems such as Wi-Fi and DAS to improve their connectivity. But, they may not realize they should also consider evolving their LAN. Only by having the right LAN infrastructure as the connectivity foundation in place, they get the availability, security, scalability and performance they need to meet the new connectivity demands of their networks.
As the 2014 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition is at the end of the month, we’re ramping up for our presence at the show. Earlier this month, I shared details about a presentation I’ll be giving, discussing how CIOs and IT can build a LAN infrastructure that meets the connectivity needs of their enterprises.
