AUSTIN (TX) – (April 27, 2006) Apogee (www.apogee.us), a leader in providing innovative technology solutions and services to higher education, announced today that the Our Lady of Lake University in San Antonio has enlisted Apogee to deploy and manage its student residential network beginning this fall.
“We looked at several different companies before deciding on Apogee,” said Dave Lytle, the Director of Network/Telecommunication Services at the university. “Ultimately, we decided that both the university and our student body would be best served by selecting a provider that recognizes the specific opportunities and challenges we face.”
“Apogee has been serving the needs of higher education for almost ten years. In doing our due diligence, we found that the company has an excellent reputation among current clients, giving us the confidence to move forward.”
Apogee CEO and Founder Chuck Brady said “We are thrilled to have OLLU onboard. It´s clear that Apogee´s ResNet partnerships are working well in the real world and we are finding more and more schools are looking into alternative and progressive ways to meet their objectives with respect to ResNet.”
Apogee is the largest, most innovative provider of on-campus residential networks (ResNet) in higher education. Partnering with Apogee for ResNet services allows colleges and universities to enhance their network infrastructure while offloading the growing volume of administrative responsibilities associated with managing a student network. This partnership allows IT to focus on the mission-critical tasks of the university, such as growing the enterprise network and facilitating the development and use of e-learning tools and content.
