Provide Better Connectivity
Your Students Demand It.

Are students, faculty, and employees complaining about slow internet speeds or the lack of connectivity? Is coverage and consistency an issue? These are all results of an underbuilt network. BIG Wireless is here to change that.

Is your network affecting recruitment?

Is Your Wireless Network Driving Students Away?

For today’s college student, your school’s WiFi network is the only network they care about; they expect it to be fast, free, and accessible anywhere on campus they go. Your institution may provide a world-class education, stellar faculty, and amazing career opportunities - but if your WiFi is slow or unreliable, you are at a disadvantage.

Gone are the days of “ports-per-pillow” calculations to determine network capacity; instead, a college network is measured by coverage, bandwidth, and speed. Poor connectivity will result in more complaints for the IT department, frustrated students & faculty, and a negative impact on admissions & recruitment efforts.

What's Standing in the Way of a Faster Network?

Outdated Network

Networks designed 5-10 years ago quickly get bogged down by today’s wireless demands. Today’s network infrastructure needs to be designed from the ground up with wireless connectivity in mind.

Older Buildings

Is your campus filled with older or historic buildings? Brick, cement, and concrete block will significantly diminish wireless connectivity. Your network needs to provide better connectivity in every building on your campus.

Finances

Most college leaders recognize that network upgrades add significant capital and operational expenses to already tight budgets. Through incremental upgrades and leasing options, there are ways to make updates to your network without breaking your budget.

Preparing Your Network for the Future

The average college-age student may bring 10 or more internet-connected devices to your campus, including laptops, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, smart TVs, and IoT smart home devices & speakers. And that list is only going to increase, as the number of connected devices per person is expected to double over the next four years.

To meet the bandwidth demands of current and future students, private colleges and universities need to invest in an IT infrastructure that can grow and scale with demand. These types of networks can provide reliable wireless connectivity across the campus, support education & facility systems, and provide a better experience for students, faculty, and guests.

Benefits of a Forward-Thinking WiFi Network


Online Instruction: As more schools are moving to providing online-only or blended instruction courses, students and faculty are heavily relying on connectivity for their classes.

Accessibility: Provide support and connectivity for accessible technologies and devices used by students who have physical or learning disabilities.

Facility Operations: Security, POS, and energy-efficiency systems depend on a reliable wireless network infrastructure.
