Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features.
The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges, including
assessing the ability of your network to handle not only additio

Collaboration across the healthcare team has always been important. What’s different today? You can collaborate over video anywhere anytime to education, delivery care or get things done!
Education, It’s a good thing, right? But education to prevent unnecessary re-hospitalizations is a great thing. Patients with chronic disease may find themselves in the hospital on Monday, released to go home a few days later, just to find themselves back in the Emergency room the following Monday creating an expensive cycle of declining health. Collaborative video education is breaking this cycle helping healthcare teams and patients better manage disease through community and home based education.

Network readiness is an important factor in any new IT project at companies both large and small. New applications seem to require more bandwidth than the applications that they replace. These applications can also bring in new users, sometimes by the thousands. In some cases, the network services and/or capacity are not ready for these changes, and the IT rollout suffers.
This guide covers the following topics: bandwidth, wireless, firewalls, content filtering, proxy servers, and others.
Higher education has come under increasing scrutiny as never before due to rising costs, changes in future job requirements, and new forms of learning opportunities offered by non-traditional companies and institutions. Students and parents are rightfully questioning the value of higher education based on perceived outcomes as well as staggering student loans that in some cases could take a lifetime to pay back. While the value equation debate rages on, there is another phenomenon taking place. It is nothing short of a revolution regarding the advances in technology and how institutions of higher learning along with nontraditional organizations are utilizing these powerful new tools. These new tools include new mobile devices, enhanced and feature-rich learning management systems, data-feeding sensors, 3D printers, smart classrooms, smart buildings, and collaboration tools allowing students and faculty to collaborate just about anywhere face-to-face, virtually.
This white paper will discuss the challenges currently facing local educational entities, describe 10 exemplary local alliances that enabled connection to CalREN in California, and finish with a set of recommendations for other local entities wishing to create a successful

The idea of bring your own device (BYOD) for connectivity has been well recognized in most networking environments. Yet some corporations are still struggling to understand its potential impacts. For them, the concept of users attaching privately owned and managed smartphones, tablets or laptops to their secure networks is a relatively new and worrisome concept. However, it is a challenge that customers in higher education have been dealing with for years as students have increasingly turned to easy-to-connect and affordable laptops as study aids.

TMCC's Financial Aid Department (FA) stores about 14,000 hardcopy files, and processes approximately 7,000 new applications a year. FA workers were running out of space to house all of the files when they were told their office might be moved, resulting in the loss of their file room altogether. Since they are required by the U.S. Department of Education to keep files for four years (sometimes longer depending on a specific regulation) they knew converting to an electronic file system would save both time and money while serving their students better.
To support open government initiatives and uphold the values of transparency, participation and collaboration in the US, federal agencies today make their data open, or publicly accessible. Citizens can use this open data to assess college affordability, the economy, educational issues, environmental damage, health care, taxes, agriculture, the climate and more. Governments can use APIs to pull this open data into SAS Visual Analytics as a way to identify trends and patterns and obtain all sorts of new insights. With public health surveillance, for example, governments can monitor and evaluate indicators that point to high-risk areas so they’ll know where and how to focus efforts. Such public health surveillance can serve as an early warning system for impending emergencies, document the impact of an intervention, track progress toward public health goals, and clarify health problems to inform public health policies and strategies.
Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”
The introduction of bandwidth-intensive learning applications, including video and peer-to-peer applications in teaching has fundamentally transformed the way teachers teach and students learn. The federal E-rate program has forever changed the technology landscape of school districts and libraries in the United States.
Receiving funding is not guaranteed, and following the E-rate process and procedures is critical – especially when thousands, even millions, of dollars are at stake for your district. The rewards that new, education-specific cutting edge education applications deliver to the classroom far outweigh the effort required to participate in the program. This paper briefly examines the promise of new, education-specific applications, the advanced network services that enable them, and the role of the E-rate program.
