“We were not equipped nor chartered to be an ISP. Turning that business over to Apogee was a good business decision for Ithaca College. It’s been a win-win situation for everybody.”

Apogee is the recognized leader in providing high-speed campus residential networks (ResNet) in partnership with higher education communities across the country. Partnering with Apogee to provide a high-speed ResNet 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 ITS departments to focus on mission critical tasks, such as growing the enterprise network, and facilitating the development and use of e-learning tools and content.
Increased Staff Time & Focus
Our partner schools have realized an increased ability to focus on IT resources on academic objectives, rather than committing valuable time to managing staff and time for mission critical enterprise projects while enhancing existing network and support infrastructure for students.
Satisfied Student Demand
Students today are accustomed to high-speed networks with greater mobility and bandwidth than ever before. Apogee provides guaranteed bandwidth, unrestricted access and full gaming and network support to students while keeping your costs steady and predictable.
Student Demand for mobile connectivity is skyrocketing. Let Apogee bring high-speed, wall-to-wall wireless to your residences as a part of a custom student network. With a wireless solution by Apogee, you can extend your ResNet to common areas, from the laundry or game room to the poolside lounge chair, surpassing high student expectations and providing a critical amenity to attract on and off-campus residents.
Expert 24-Hour Support
Our locally managed support teams offer around-the-clock network support for the devices students are bringing to campus. From PDAs to DVRs, it’s not just about desktop and laptop computers anymore.
Enhanced Network Protections
Professional installation, extensive testing, and 24-hour network monitoring to guarantee the security and reliability of your student network.
A strategic Plan for Growth
By implementing customized and innovative technology solutions, Apogee can help you lay the foundation for future growth. Through Network partnership, campuses create efficiencies, stabilize cost and continuously adapt the latest technologies to provide the most advanced network service and support to student residents.
