Build a network as intelligent as your students
In the current climate, the campus network is more critical than ever; the design, functionality and capacity must provide world-class experiences to every student, department, school and research partner that connects to it and through it – regardless of location or device.
Why do we need to act?
Secure, scalable and automated network infrastructure is the bedrock of digital services enabling rich online content for students and secure remote access for academics. It must underpin the University’s ambitions to climb TEF, REF and NSS rankings to drive new strategic opportunities and increase student enrolment. Education institutions are choosing to transform their networks, opting for modern, intelligent solutions that can support increasing demands. The shift to enhance digital learning, teaching and user needs on demand service 24/7/365 is imperative. Educators and campuses need real intelligence in the network to connect the physical and digital to improve the student experience
“In delivering our transformational IT strategy to ensure we create a world-leading ‘Digital University’ we have looked to partner with organisations who share our vision of innovation. After a significant process that involved engagements across the industry, our selection of Roc Technologies as a partner is down to not only their technical and commercial fit but also their commitment to the social and cultural values – so important to the University and wider community. It is a pleasure to work with an organisation that shares our values for giving something back and we look forward to working with them to not only develop our IT infrastructure but our relationships with our stakeholders” Malcom Whitehouse, Chief Information Officer at The University of Manchester
