We understand that today’s colleges and universities face growing internal and external bandwidth demands and meeting these demands are critical to quality of education and life on campus. Colleges and universities need increased bandwidth to deliver a premium educational experience, accommodate students’ many connected devices, and support advanced research projects, but many times are faced with budget constraints that limit progress. Champion ONE can help.

What Can We Help You Achieve?

Equipping Faculty with the Tools of Tomorrow

Your network plays a critical role in the quality of education, both in and out of the classroom. Building a connected classroom requires multi-device connectivity to deliver a robust, engaging educational experience for digital native students. Meanwhile, professors are increasingly seeking to expand their reach through online education and virtual classrooms. These enhancements are essential to attracting and retaining both students and faculty.

Powering Life-Changing Research

Without the critical contributions of the global academic research community, our understanding of the world around us would be severely limited. We would lack many of the products and materials we rely on, as well as the medicines that save our lives. We provide the bandwidth to support the data collection, storage, and analysis behind this commitment to making the world a better place through the endless pursuit of knowledge.

Enhancing the Student Experience

Life on campus is about far more than time in the classroom. From campus-wide wi-fi for entertainment pursuits to the security systems that parents trust to protect their children, our reliable network solutions help foster a safe, fun environment for current and prospective students to explore and enjoy.
