Better education and training outcomes for all Australians
We’ve come a long way from the chalkboard and a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to learning. Technology is having a massive impact on both the teaching of our kids and people in the workforce. The challenge now is to work out how to best apply these technological innovations in generating better learning outcomes, now and into the future.
Having a well-defined ICT framework and vision is critical for the successful application of these technologies to education and training. We’re focused on both today’s technologies and services and a future where virtual reality (VR), 5G and artificial intelligence (AI) underpin the next wave of enhanced learning for people in Australia.
HIGH CAPACITY INTERNET
Internet access is like water and power: we just expect it as a basic utility. But like power and water we have to be smarter in whom we source it from and how we use it. We’re experts in delivering high capacity, diverse and uncontended Internet access to schools and learning institutions across Australia.
DO YOU WANT SECURITY WITH THAT?
The benefits of a massively interconnected world are somewhat offset by the dramatic increase in security and information risks. Traditional firewalls and overall approaches to security in the education industry is often found wanting. The challenge is to both ‘stop the bad’ and ‘enable the good’. It’s a challenge we relish.
WI-FI ENABLES MOBILITY
In case you missed it, the Wi-Fi standard is being seriously improved with a number of capacity, quality and interoperability enhancements. Carrier grade Wi-Fi is here now and for those ‘in the know’ it has the potential to dramatically change the way mobility is delivered in and across schools and learning institutions.
WAN FOR MULTI-SITE CONNECTIVITY
Huge value and performance improvements come from the provision of a well-considered wide area network (WAN) across multiple sites. This is particularly true for organisations with sites in regional, rural and remote Australia. A QoS enabled WAN provides you with the choice and flexibility of accessing any private and or public Cloud.
ASSURED CLOUD PERFORMANCE
For all the talk about Cloud services, there is not a lot said about the importance of the underlying network. A myopic focus on just ‘speeds and feeds’ ignores the more relevant issues around application performance and user experience. We ‘right size’ the service to ensure your optimal utilisation of private and public Cloud.
INTERCONNECTS WITH OTHER LEARNING NETWORKS
As we push to ‘open up’ the learning experience, interconnects with other institutions are becoming ever more in demand. We address the challenges that exist in providing secure, scalable and flexible interconnects with a growing number of institutions in Australia and across the world. We make it easy so you can make it great.
PRIVATE MOBILE FOR OPERATIONS
Larger education providers have operational and security requirements for private mobile connectivity within and across multiple campuses. Digital two-way radio, private LTE and Voice over WLAN underpin the delivery of critical voice and video communications for staff and students alike.
A FUTURE WITH VR, 5G AND AI
We reckon VR is a game changer for education and skills-based training. But VR requires super low latency and seriously enhanced performance parameters to be implemented on the network. We’re busy providing distributed multi-access edge computing (MEC), integrated 5G (LTE / WLAN) and AI for education of the future.
