Transforming learning and teaching at UST

A recent upgrade of the wireless network infrastructure at University of Santo Tomas (UST) has profoundly transformed learning and teaching at the university. UST chose Cisco as an end-to-end network infrastructure vendor because of demonstrated performance consistency and reliability, availability and fulfillment of support requirements.

Summary

Challenges

  • Create a highly collaborative environment between students and teachers as well as professors and administrators
  • Enhance the educational process to help facilitate learning objectives and teaching strategies -- making educators more resourceful, creative, and productive

Results

  • 100% wireless coverage of exterior campus areas and interior common areas
  • Liberated both teachers and students, increasing student-to-student collaborations and communications
  • Seamless wireless internet access for students, even if they are on the move
  • UST is in a position to deploy innovative new software and applications in the near future

What they’re saying

"When we decided in 2007 to integrate all the technologies and solutions from different vendors across our infrastructure, we decided to go with Cisco. Besides the fact that they were able to provide an end-to-end solution, our experience with them had also been positive -- in terms of the reliability of their equipment and support as well as the support we received from their management."

Sebastian Raymond A. Mendoza, Assistant Director for Network Operations, University of Santo Tomas
