Students who live on campus have historically participated more in co-curricular activities and achieve higher GPAs. Of the 600 institutional strategic plans Apogee has researched, nearly all of them have a focus on residential life and its importance to student outcomes and university goals. Apogee is the premier provider of Residential Network (ResNet) services, pioneering the space in higher education nearly 20 years ago. Apogee invites you to rethink your ResNet WiFi business model so you can focus on your most pressing strategic issues.

Apogee ResNet Location Analytics leverages the power of ResNet to deliver actionable insights about how your facilities are being utilized and what activities are popular among your students. You can tap into a massive wireless dataset to get anonymized analytics to: visualize the usage of common areas over time, observe traffic patterns for bottlenecks, gauge attendance at events, and identify under-utilized areas to improve spaces.
Apogee gets you up and running fast, saving time and money with limited disruption to campus activities. We deploy ResNets in environments ranging from historical landmarks that require special care to state-of-the-art smart buildings in just 2-4 weeks.
