Access to reliable, high-speed communications infrastructure is essential to the success of today’s college and university campuses. It’s become integral to learning environments and helps to attract students who expect quality internet in the classroom, in their dorms, and everywhere they learn and communicate. A dedicated fiber network also supports world-class research, and can help you meet future growth and keep up with the advanced services and technologies required to connect a modern campus.
