Application Monitoring for On-premises, Hybrid, and Multi-cloud Environments

Applications live everywhere within education organizations—on-premises, in the cloud (AWS®/GovCloud, Azure®, Google®, Cloud.gov), or in some combination of these. Yet, no matter where your applications live, they still need to be monitored for performance and optimization.


Audio Networking for Higher Education

Modern campuses contain many technical marvels, but too often the AV system isn’t one of them. While today’s students are accustomed to ubiquitous digital connectivity, the systems in place frequently use point-to-point analog and digital connections that tether the system to physical locations and short distances. Connecting these systems using legacy technology simply makes no sense, technical and otherwise.
