PCs and servers
in education drive the network and cater to users, differentiated for staff and students. Setting up permissions and authorizations helps maintain possible threats, whether based on account type or endpoint terminal. We can assist with or plan for a deployment by preconfiguring off-site and integrating on-location, which limits disruption and downtime. TriTech can customize technology solutions for academic offices, administrative desks, computer labs, and rack servers. Dedicated networking servers include e-mail and fax.

Certified partners of TriTech for computers and servers include Acer, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, Lenovo, Microsoft, Multi-Tech, Novell, and Toshiba.

Network security
for schools is vital for uptime and protection of assets. Protective monitoring oversees local networks in real-time so risks and vulnerabilities can be detected and addressed before causing too many issues. This way, IT departments can concentrate on regular maintenance and higher priority tasks rather than watching network activity and combating threats. With the proper tools and configurations, TriTech computer network engineers develop cybersecurity solutions to keep administration and academics safe.

Certified partners of TriTech for network security include Avaya, Barracuda, Cisco, Fortinet, Netgear, and Ubiquiti.

Paging and intercom systems
in classrooms and schools are necessities, from daily announcements to emergency protocol. Paging systems are used to summon individuals and report time-sensitive notifications, installed in common areas such as:

  • Classrooms
  • Hallways and stairwells
  • Gathering points and community areas (cafeteria, library, gymnasium, bathroom, auditorium)
  • Outdoor broadcasting (parking lot, quad, walkways, entrance doors, fields)

Intercoms allow convenient two-way communication and can be operated in combination with security camera systems and emergency push button phones, installed for student safety and access management in common areas such as:

  • Receiving docks
  • Restricted areas
  • Locked entrances during school hours (K-12)
  • Locked entrances to dorms and residence halls (higher education)

Our trained team of computer network engineers and hardware technicians detail available options for your specific solution to fit your goals and budget, whether installing dedicated sound equipment or blending with VoIP phones.

Certified partners of TriTech for overhead paging and two-way intercom sound systems include 2N, Algo, Bogen, CyberData, GAI-Tronics, Snom, Valcom, and Viking.

ip camera icon

IP security camera systems
in schools can give piece of mind to parents that their child is being watched and students who walk around campus at night. IP cameras can monitor residence hall entrances and corridors, building break-ins and trespassing afterhours, and parking lots. The presence of surveillance cameras may prevent situations that would’ve happened otherwise and identify events that would’ve happened unnoticed otherwise. Video evidence is extremely helpful in clarifying incidents and even participants, especially vandalism of property and student conduct violations.

Certified partners of TriTech for access control include 2N, Axis, Bosch, Cisco, and Paxton. Certified partners of TriTech for IP surveillance cameras include ACTi, Axis, Bosch, Cisco, D-Link, Digital Watchdog, GeoVision, Grandstream, HikVision, Linksys, Mobotix, Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba, Ubiquiti, and Vivotek.

video conferencing icon

Video conferencing
is essential for eLearning programs and the future of educational technology. Room designs for VC systems are custom, state-of-the-art solutions for HD audio and video communication. Guest speakers don’t need to be physically present in order to make an appearance, removing the factors of distance and busy schedule conflicts. For employees who work from multiple different locations, conferencing reduces travel and added stress while keeping them informed and involved. Networking experts at TriTech specialize in the conferencing technology that they design and implement, making an efficient IT experience from start to finish.

Certified partners of TriTech for video conferencing systems include AVer, Avteq, Barco, Cisco, ClearOne, Double Robotix, Epson projectors, HuddleCamHD, LifeSize, Logitech, Polycom, Revolabs, Skype for Business, Smart Whiteboards, and Yealink.

Certified partners of TriTech for conference phones include Cisco, ClearOne, Grandstream, Jabra, Konftel, Polycom, and Revolabs.

RFID icon

RFID
for education is a more affordable, simple alternative to barcodes. Easily manage the tracking and availability of borrowed materials as well as the stock status of goods and supplies with fast, thorough scanning.

Certified partners of TriTech for RFID include Avery Dennison, Impinj, and Intermec.

K-12

With different specific needs than higher education, K-12 education is less about mobility and student connectivity.

signal icon

Wireless access
in K-12 schools is usually reserved for school-owned technology, reducing the amount of cabling needed, and unavailable to student devices since mobility is less important than in higher education. The possibility of students surpassing the knowledge of IT departments is very real, computer science and technology learning now a common part of curriculums. Wireless network security must be enhanced to battle the challenges that may surface as a result.

Certified partners of TriTech for wireless access points include Adtran, Avaya, Cisco, DrayTek, Grandstream, Linksys, Netgear, and Ubiquiti.

Higher Education

Higher education demands easy mobility and reliable communication on a hectic network of staff and students. Providing such extensive connectivity means network security needs to just be just as comprehensive.

signal icon

Wireless access
on campus and residence dormitories are more open than lower educational schools, therefore more vulnerable. It’s impossible (and impractical) to keep track of unknown devices, since users can own many and change freely, so wireless connections must be simple but protected. This can be done with the appropriate cybersecurity hardware and security settings configured by a networking professional from TriTech.

vpn icon

Remote access through VPNs
allow convenient, secure connections for different buildings and multiple locations. Creating a virtual LAN over the Internet, faculty and staff can communicate instantly from anywhere – across campus, from home, or the other side of the country. Using encryption and authentication methods, VPNs act as an added layer of security for local network access also. TriTech has services to design, install, and troubleshoot VPNs and remote access solutions.

Certified partners of TriTech for remote access and VPNs include Barracuda, Cisco, DrayTek, Fortinet, Grandstream, Linksys, Netgear, TRENDnet, and Ubiquiti.

voip icon

VoIP
utilizes the Internet access already in place and eliminates costly telephone providers, saving money without sacrificing quality and features. VoIP solutions are flexible, ranging from basic calls with IP phones for staff to unified communications that integrate multiple technologies for faculty, and easily adaptable to meet future strategies. With VoIP as a UC solution, professors and instructors can be reached by their professional phone number and school email address on personal devices to remotely work and be contacted. This mobility improves the teacher-student interaction and takes into account the personal lives of educators. VoIP features that can greatly influence faculty include mobile applications, instant messaging, and in-call phone-to-phone transfer. Our trained professionals specialize in VoIP and UC solutions and will help determine the system best suited for your educational needs.

Certified partners of TriTech for VoIP phones include AudioCodes, Avaya, Cisco, ClearOne, Digium, EnGenius, Fanvil, Grandstream, Htek, Incom, Jabra, Mitel, Panasonic, Polycom, RCA, Revolabs, Sangoma, Snom, Spectralink, Ubiquiti, VTech, Xblue, and Yealink.

printer icon

Printers and copiers
are heavily relied upon in education. With TriTech managed print services and repairs, school IT departments can focus on technical and time-sensitive tasks such as user requests and network troubleshooting rather than broken or jammed printers. Our printer service technicians certified for warranty-authorized repairs on Epson, Oki Data, and Xerox. TriTech also offers out-of-warranty repairs for most printer manufacturers and models.

Educational Solutions with Cisco Certified Services from TriTech

Cisco
for education has a wide variety of products and services ranging from network access hardware to surveillance cameras. University students require near-perfect connectivity and resource uptime in order to maximize productivity and collaboration, any day and all night. Data center and server reliability is crucial for faculty, too, because teaching and learning don’t stop after school hours. From mobility with wireless to communication with voice and video, Cisco products and TriTech services provide substantial education solutions for IT and networking.

One of the main reasons for cybersecurity breaches in education is disruption of service, which is a problem when students learn the latest technology at the same time as IT departments and professionals. Cisco solutions can distinguish permissions for applications and accounts between student, faculty, and staff – such as VPNs to create secure access for shared connectivity – and wireless security helps prevent unauthorized retrieval of connected devices and network usage.

With non-partners, you don’t know what you’re going to get – claims do not mean knowledge – and TriTech has certification qualifications and a proven record of successful Cisco solutions. Our computer network engineers are trained on the technologies that we offer to best understand school infrastructures and expectations.

School Technology with Microsoft Certified Partner Solutions from TriTech

Microsoft
is a beneficial complement to schools and universities – and TriTech is a Certified Silver Partner. A connected experience for college students allows for secure, simplified device management and easy communication. Faculty can “focus on outcomes, not technology” with real-time data on students and sharing capabilities to their peers. For staff, integrated analytics lets departments gain valuable insight for smarter decisions (whether regarding students or administrative-focused) and to elevate performance based on what the data reports.

For example, Tacoma School District in Washington used Azure for six years to improve graduation rates from 55% to 82.6%. By having the ability to compile information and systemize data, at-risk students became apparent to needing guidance.

Research finds that proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite is one of the top required skills for job applicants, so Microsoft Office being taught and utilized in education is a clear positive – plus, they have education discounts and special offers on devices and software.
