The idea of bring your own device (BYOD) for connectivity has been well recognized in most networking environments. This trend has only increased in recent years as more students have turned to personal computing devices as study aides as connectivity has become easier and costs have fallen. This white paper explores the impact of BYOD on modern education network environments through education-specific cases and a deeper look at the evolving needs of wired and wireless network access on campus.
