In order to create better learning opportunities, raise learning standards, reduce costs, and improve security, today’s schools, colleges, and universities throughout the world are implementing powerful network infrastructure solutions. They are also maximizing the performance of their networks by deploying ever-faster, higher-capacity, simultaneous connections for voice, video, and data.
As is so true in education though, institutions and IT departments are always expected to do more with less – more equipment with tighter timelines and lower budgets, which are serious challenges to operating an effective network.
Planning ahead is imperative. EDI believes in designing the most effective solutions that leverage technology, as well as your mission, and takes a vendor-neutral, engineering-based approach to the design of your organization’s most critical communications systems.
Our young people and students are some of our most valuable assets. Keeping them and your staff safe while on campus should be one of the most important things to consider if you are a school or university administrator. Unfortunately, schools and universities are the target of many threats, and securing them can be difficult. EDI uses a consultative approach to help you define the security needs at your facility and design cost-effective security solutions to meet your needs. Our experience creating general security programs and policies, as well as comprehensive security master plans, for educational institutions around the world is a valuable asset we bring to the design at your facility.
We are vendor–neutral and we will recommend “best of breed” solutions that meet your security needs and your budget. We can also lean on our experts in cabling infrastructure, network design, telephone design, and audio-visual to assist with elements of security design because these systems are increasingly converging as the technology advances.
Our security services include:
Today’s classrooms enhance teaching methods and improve student comprehension through the use of audio-visual aids. Educational instruction that stimulates the senses of sight and hearing is essential to an educator who wants to capitalize on a new generation’s appetite for multimedia presentations.
EDI’s experienced professionals specialize in complete audio-visual design, which includes not only the proper equipment, but also the space planning, room shaping, room finishes, lighting, and acoustics. We have worked with many educational facilities incorporating audio-visual designs into:
“EDI’s depth of IT systems and their correct applications saved a campus from a major communication problem. EDI gets the engineering right.”
"EDI’s design and project management support met our goal to minimize disruption while implementing a scalable, secure, and robust network infrastructure capable of supporting all the needs of Brown University.”
“EDI has been able to work with our faculty and staff and understand Spelman’s needs, as well as offer some very significant suggestions as we moved forward.”
