Cloud-optimised networks will greatly enhance the e-learning experience for Hong Kong students, according to global IP networking solution provider H3C.
The networks will also improve productivity for both teachers and school administrators but H3C points towards a need to upgrade existing networking architectures.
This upgrade is expected to ensure that e-learning adoption is not impeded by performance and availability issues.
H3C's product manager, Debbie Leung, emphasises that the company's cloud-optimised networks have the ability to accelerate the transformation of education from a textbook-based and teacher-centred mode to an interactive and student-centred approach to learning.
The company has also developed the virtualised network technology to facilitate the delivery of a cloud-based teaching model.
This model, emphasises H3C, encourages students to develop a self-directed learning habit in an enjoyable environment.
Supporting network expansion
By using dynamic routing and point-to-point connection, the H3C virtualised network technology not only reduces network path complexity but also enhances transmission and reliability.
The virtualised network enables students to easily access materials in and out of the classroom through the cloud networks.
This network also supports future network expansion and streamlines campus network management.
"For more than 10 years, H3C has been helping schools and educational institutions to harness the power of IT to further extend and enhance the learning experience," said Leung.
"Our close collaboration with schools has helped us to develop solutions that address the needs of students, educators and administrators. We see e-learning in the cloud as the next evolution of this transformation and H3C is committed to helping schools move to the next level of education."
