Over the years, higher education has witnessed some amazing technological innovations, including remote learning, VR and AR labs, IoT, and so on. With technology taking the higher education sector by storm, institutions are expected to bring students' ideas to life with high reliance on their technology infrastructure, to support learning channels, and foster research and collaboration.

  • Ensuring high uptime and availability of campus networks, internal learning portals, and critical applications for uninterrupted learning.
  • Enforcing protocols to whitelist learning websites and forums while restricting access to social media, entertainment, news, and so on.
