In today’s day and age, higher education schools and institutions are looking for products and solutions that allow them to expand beyond a physical campus or classroom.

Advances in technology are ushering a revolution in centuries-old protocols. Cloud-based computing, mobile connectivity and streaming video enable collaboration and learning to take place anytime and anywhere. For school districts and higher education institutions, communication isn’t simply about a phone system. It is about expanding the reach of knowledge in ways unimaginable before, fostering collaboration inside and outside the classroom and ensuring that students, faculty and staff are kept safe. Avaya’s products and solutions provide higher education institutions with enhanced campus safety, improved academic quality, and competitive recruitment capabilities.

Schools have a duty to provide information to the parents of their pupils, but there are times when it is difficult to assemble everyone involved. In some situations, an interpreter may also be required. Konftel’s 300Wx is an excellent tool for school personnel during development talks and individual parent-teacher meetings when an interpreter is required or when a parent lives elsewhere or cannot be present at the meeting.
The goal of education is to create the best learning opportunities for as many students as possible. Unfortunately, not all educational institutions have the ability or resources to offer the enriched programs that they wish they could offer, and students may be left hungry to learn. With video conferencing, your customers can bring the world into the classroom. Lifesize is leading the way to a more interconnected, inspiring learning experience, and their background working with school districts and universities all over the world has helped them tailor their technology to meet the particular needs of educators.

Communication is an integral part of education and schools need an affordable, easy-to-use technology that enables it. Switchvox, a VoIP phone system, makes it simple to replace an older phone system and quickly experience the benefits of using mobile applications, dedicated conference rooms, and other advanced features that take school communications to the next level. Switchvox is more than a basic school phone system that simply answers calls. It helps connect teachers, staff members, and parents anywhere, anytime.
Many universities and schools are under pressure to modernize. Not just because of evolutionary change, but because of the ongoing need to be more efficient, agile, and resourceful. Many older telephone systems are technically not very flexible. Universities and schools are, in most cases, dependent on their phone providers to make changes and relocations. With IP telephony solutions involving Snom phones, moving and changing will no longer be a long and costly affair, because the remote provisioning capability makes the phones flexible and easy to use.
More than ever, Campus & School Communication Systems must provide crystal clear communications.
