As more and more students use mobile devices on campus to do things like, working on homework, checking their social feeds and watching YouTube, IT teams have had to rethink how to deliver and manage the growing demand for faster and more reliable campus WiFi performance.
In the past few years the volume of mobile devices on college and university campuses has increased dramatically, with little to no signs of slowing down, leaving most schools scrambling to support the increased load on their campus wireless networks.
For example, Midland University discovered that mobile devices accounted for over 60% of the total number of all devices connecting to their network. This is a common trend and one that is likely to only increase.
