Students today don’t respond to the traditional methods of communication from their college or university like they once did. While websites and email are appropriate for housing and delivering certain types of information, institutions need to develop a campus-wide mobile presence in order to reach students effectively and in the format they prefer. 

In the race to attract, retain and prepare students, the institutions with the most relevant programs and most current technologies have an advantage.

Previously, students were looked at in a very fragmented way: They were either a recruit, an applicant, a student, a potential graduate, a lifelong learner or potential dropout. New tools have caused a shift in how higher ed is viewing students, we can now think of the student in a much more holistic way.

“The Wi-Fi is slow” is a common complaint. Poor performance on a Wi-Fi network has many different causes, but one common cause is the fact that airtime is shared among all Wi-Fi devices on the same channel in the same area. If too many devices are trying to transmit on the same channel, performance will slow down for everyone.

Too many access points on the same channel in the same area is known as co-channel interference (CCI)
