Here at 3M we understand that Education networks are among the most challenging and complex found anywhere involving large numbers of users, high volumes of traffic and a myriad of applications, often across dispersed campus sites. So the structured cabling system that underpins the smooth-running of any education network has to work hard, perform well and be totally reliable. Against this, education network managers have to deal with the tight budgets typical of the academic world, so they want cabling systems that will be fit for purpose not just today, but are flexible and scalable in the future.
