The Internet of Things (IoT) has a broad impact on campus life, affecting everything from the student experience to campus safety. Successful integration of the IoT on a campus is expected to yield significant benefits for students, faculty, researchers, and staff, but the ongoing implementation of IoT devices and systems will have a large downstream impact on the school’s network infrastructure. In order for a campus to support the explosive growth in IoT systems, strategic investments need to be made in their network infrastructure’s capacity, scalability, and resiliency. The integration of network-connected devices into systems like campus safety and facilities management systems are critical as well as the uptime of the campus network to support the increasing demands.
