Wireless Infrastructure For Colleges and Universities
Colleges and universities see providing wireless broadband Internet access as a necessity given the increasing use of the Internet for teaching and research. Providing high speed connectivity gives a key competitive advantage in the crowded education industry, where students base their choices on how well connected the schools are to the Information Age.
A Wi-Fi Wide Area Network (WAN) is the most effective way for schools to provide broadband access to staff and students in classrooms, residences, labs, offices, cafeterias, and even in parks, open spaces, and recreational areas- without running the costs of or damaging existing infrastructure by laying cables.
In developing countries, video conferencing technology allows qualified teachers based in towns or cities to teach several rural classrooms simultaneously and thereby bring quality education to the village level. As a cost effective and easily deployed-and-managed communication solution, wireless networks are easily adapted for such educational purposes.
Video conferencing technology combined with a wireless network allows teachers
to teach at several village schools, virtually
The Byrraju Foundation, a well known Indian non-profit organization set up by Mr. B. Ramalinga Raju, Chairman of Satyam Computer Services Ltd, successfully completed a project that connected several rural village schools for E-Learning. In a project that attracted the attention and support of the President of India, His Excellency, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, adults and schoolchildren in these remote villages are now able to access lessons taught in far away cities. Click here to read more about this project.
In another deployment that was featured on BBC,
several remote Nepalese villages in the Himalayan mountains used
smartBridges radios in a wireless network that serves as their
sole communications means to each other and the outside world.
With this network, a teacher based in one village schoolroom can
teach classes in the other villages at the same time, making the
best use of limited resources.
