Comcast Business Passes the Test; Trusted by Post University to Up-level the Student Experience
Prominent online university keeps connected with Comcast Business ethernet
WATERBURY, Conn. – January 15, 2020 –Comcast Business today announced Post University relies on high-speed connectivity from Comcast Business to keep the online university’s admissions, advising and financial aid departments up and running.
Post University is one of the largest universities in Connecticut, and among the first to implement an online degree program. Starting almost 130 years ago, the University has seen significant growth. Today, its population exceeds 10,000 students.
Post University is known for its innovation and quality educational experience. With a strong online student population, it was important for the educational institution to find a service that allows them to provide the same level of support and resources to both their digital and on-campus students. As a way to remain constantly connected, Post University students connect with staff through video calls and texting, rather than just traditional phone calls and emails.
Comcast Business’ Five Gigabit Ethernet Private Line (EPL) delivers secure, high-performance connections between two sites, allowing Post University to bypass public internet and securely transmit over a private connection. This type of solution is ideal for applications like data center integration.
“We operate on a virtual desktop environment here at Post University,” said, David Aldarondo, manager of network services, Post University. “Rather than our staff having traditional computers, they instead connect to servers which then connect them to a virtual desktop equipped with internet access and active tools allowing them to effectively communicate with students. Without having a seamless, secure connection, we would not be able to provide the educational experience for which we’re known.”
Added Paul Savas, regional vice president of Comcast Business for Comcast’s Western New England Region, “Every student deserves to feel supported during their educational career. Comcast Business is proud to provide the support and technology to help Post University uphold its outstanding educational standards to students in and outside of the classroom.”
