Get educated on HP's 'Business of Education'

Today a key measurement of success for a primary/secondary schools is based on test results, graduation rates and college bound students ratios. To achieve acceptable marks in these areas schools must become proficient in what HP calls the 'Business of Education'.

We have found that many primary/secondary schools are still running on a combination of legacy and new applications that are hosted on disparate proprietary networks which often cause: interoperability, visibility and security challenges. Network chaos like this makes it challenging to support contemporary learning environments such as media-rich interactive courses, distance learning, one-to-one computing, as well as essential services such as administrative services and emergency notification systems.

Primaty/Secondary Education

The HP Business of Education is a cost conscience strategy that enables an institution to balance the need to offer a mobile, 24x7x365 accessible network that supports real-time, collaborative learning and back office applications, while providing the 21st century tools their student need to adapt, function and excel in the next step of their life's journey. Below are three steps of the strategy that HP has assisted institutions in accomplishing:

A high-performance network is critical to enabling media-rich collaboration, real-time assessments that can help in developing individualized lesson plans.

The HP Business of Education and FlexNetwork architecture enables you to design and build best-in-class networks that align with your education initiatives and budget. The HP FlexNetwork architecture allows institutions to segment their networks into modular building blocks. FlexCampus converges wired and wireless networks to deliver media-enhanced, secure identity based access. FlexBranch converges network functionality and services, delivering an enhanced network learning experience for distance learning and satellite campuses.

Is the high volume of Wi-Fi Devices penetrating your education networks? — Are you ready?

Education Case Study

Today’s faculty and administrators have more technological tools at their disposal than ever to help tech—savvy students - Providing faculty and students with Wi-Fi services is no longer an option but a necessity to survive in an increasingly competitive market. A bad Wi-Fi experience can adversely impact the effectiveness of the student and the educator.

The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon is having a major impact on educational institutions and as a result you need to take a hard look at the following questions:

  • How do you plan to secure the many Wi-Fi clients entering your network?
  • How do you manage your wired and wireless networks?
  • Do you have the bandwidth, the density and security to accommodate the onslaught of Wi-Fi clients entering your network?

Innovation

Provide students and faculty with the optimum ease of network connectivity, the innovative MSM317 access device is a "multi functional" managed communication solution that provides:

  • Flexible communications connectivity - ideal for student dorm rooms.
A new approach to secure and manage your wired/wireless network
