Smart City Use Case 2

Making Universities Fiber Smart Campuses 

Typically Buildings/Campuses are connected individually to different services. This silo approach typically means:

  • Long term contract lock-in

  • Static environment with changes taking weeks or months

  • No optimization of services, connectivity or manageability.

  • Little monitoring or feedback capability

Built on an intelligent fiber infrastructure, a dynamic fiber network allows for a true Smart Environment to be delivered.

  • Services can be connected remotely in a matter of seconds allowing for On-Demand services.

  • Fiber resources can be allocated as required, for as long as needed, resources can be pooled and utilized more efficiently.

  • Smart services can be fully implemented with a common fiber infrastructure to monitor, deliver and control.

  • Fast churn environments such as student accommodation, managed offices, research parks can be managed quickly and efficiently without needing site visits, or asking local admin staff to provide ‘smart hands’ services.
