Higher Education

Higher education today faces multiple challenges, from optimizing shrinking budgets to preparing students for a changing work environment.

Information and communications technology (ICT) plays a well-established role in providing everything from data centers for advanced research to online collaboration with higher education institutions and corporate partners around the world. ALE campus and data center solutions automatically adapt to meet the needs of students, researchers and administrators, while providing lower cost of ownership and flexible integration with existing systems.

Enabling experience-driven learning

ICT is playing a key role in the evolution of higher education. Students and employers alike are demanding more practical, hands-on instruction, team learning, and a wider exposure to resources and experiences. ICT allows students to reach beyond the limits of the classroom, engaging with subjects that are more personally significant, using a variety of media and even communicating and collaborating directly with partners involved in the subject.

ALE’s campus solutions provide a unified network-based experience with reliable support for a large number of densely located student devices — contributing to closing today’s performance gap affordably and helping differentiate your institution in the higher education marketplace.

Personalizing the student’s experience

ALE communication, campus and data center solutions automatically adapt to meet the needs of students, researchers and administrators, while providing lower cost of ownership and flexible integration with existing systems.

As educators embrace the promise of experience-based learning, ICT can support it with ALE communication solutions providing a personalized connected experience. One that delivers seamless access to content and applications using their preferred devices, ranging from mobile phones to tablets to PCs, from inside or outside the classroom, at whatever time and at whatever pace best suits the student.

Making it affordable

Universities rarely can afford to do a complete upgrade of their already extensive networks. Being able to fit the solution to the available funding is key. Operational costs are also critical. From the data center to self-healing intelligent-fabric networks, ALE is focused on automating the network and lowering the total cost of ownership for educational institutions — so their limited resources can be focused on their students, not running the network.
