How fibre optic technology can advance education

December 11, 2017

Whether it’s simple improvements to connectivity, or the addition of advanced cloud-based learning systems, disruptive technologies are consistently improving the standard of education, worldwide. We’re passionate about the education sector and we’re confident that fibre infrastructure will have a fantastic impact on the way Australians learn. Here are some of the benefits of installing our GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) solution on campus:

A more productive campus

Traditional ADSL and Cable internet services and even the new NBN Services are not coping with the growing demands of educational networks. By providing an independent carrier feed fibre service at an appropriate size, we can meet and exceed the demands that educators face. Plus, broadband speeds through our GPON are up to and in excess of ten times faster. They’re also far stronger and more reliable. With this, you can expect enhanced efficiencies, increased workflow and more effective processes, both now and well into the future.

Long term cost savings

Despite the initial costs, switching to a fibre-optic network has a proven return on investment. Because it is a more reliable and powerful system, there are far less capital, maintenance, operational or life cycle costs involved. With these savings, you can focus funds into new ventures that continue to improve the quality of teaching and learning.

Be part of the Internet of Things (IoT)

Fibre infrastructure can also seamlessly connect a campus to the Internet of Things, leading to stronger internal communications and exciting new usage opportunities for teachers and students.

A safer network and environment

Enjoy peace of mind in knowing all students and educators are safe and accounted for. You can also be confident that your IT is secure with an open access platform that provides ironclad protection against network security breaches.

More space to innovate

By eliminating big communications rooms, a single fibre network will open up more space on campus to be put to better use in new and exciting learning projects.

Environmental sustainability

Modern fibre cabling will boost your Green Star Rating, keeping your campus more environmentally friendly. It’s made from glass, so it’s fully recyclable, while using 80% less copper and 60% less power than traditional networks.
