Exinda Forms Education Advisory Group
Exinda, a global provider of next-generation WAN optimization and Network Control solutions, today announced a call for participation in the first vendor-driven advisory group aimed at addressing critical issues that impact networks at K-12 and Higher Education institutions around the world.
“We hear from our customers every day about the issues they face, especially when it comes to managing the growing amount of strategic and recreational traffic they are seeing on their networks,” said Aaron Brown, vice president of strategy and corporate alliances at Exinda. “Exinda is pleased to provide a forum where educational IT staff, researchers, analysts and others with a stake in the future development of education networks can tackle such issues and help shape solutions to solve their most pressing education network concerns.”
Education networks are unique, serving several distinct groups of users: faculty, administration students, researchers and guests. Each group puts their own unique demands and requirements on the network, usually to the detriment of other users. Exinda’s WAN Optimization and Network Control solutions give educational institutions the visibility they need to gain control over who is using the network and for what purpose, and set policies that assures the experience for all users. More than 600 educational institutions worldwide rely on the Exinda Learning Network.
“Because educational network environments are so unique, the requirements of one group of users are always seemingly at odds with the others for the use of precious network resources,” said Ryan Tollofson, director of education marketing for Exinda. “As the leader in providing network optimization solutions to educational institutions, Exinda is well positioned to form this strategic group, examine the biggest issues facing education networks and work together to find solutions.”
IT staff at educational institutions are invited to join the Exinda Education Advisory Board to help shape the discussion and present both issues and solutions. Potential participants should submit their name, title, organization and contact information to Ryan Tollofson no later than June 7, 2013.
