Gerard Donoghue, the Chief Technical Officer at Telent is to be a keynote speaker at this year’s Networkshop49 event 27th – 29th April. The virtual event, which is hosted by education technology organisation Jisc, focuses on the digital transformation of networks and how approximately 2.5 million students across the country have had to adapt to a changing studying environment.
The student networking solution
Expanding on Telent’s solutions, Gerard’s presentation is titled ‘Innovation in University Campus of the future, delivered through high performance networks, 5G and AI driven analytics’ and will explore how the latest advances in networking can enable new applications, and how Telent’s solutions can improve students’ wellbeing, enhance research projects and increase work productivity.
Telent understand how essential implementation of a high performance network is for universities, offering establishments so much that just connecting students and staff to the internet or university computing resources. Networks and AI driven analytics have applications for the wellbeing, safety and engagement of students. Other examples of new applications for wireless networks include campus navigation and automatic location of quiet studying areas. In addition to this is the ability to automate a sign-in feature for lectures, and to access digital timetables on-demand.
Networking to a bright future
Including Telent as a sponsor for the first time, Networkshop49 is a three-day programme that will take place on 27th - 29th April and will feature keynote speaking, lightning talks, networking opportunities and training workshops that will outline how young people can keep their data and security safe from phishing attacks.
