Every year, the amount of mobile devices that students bring onto a college campus increases. According to Online Colleges, 41% of students have three or more devices connected to the Internet at one time. As use of these devices increase, the need for additional bandwidth becomes a constant. Soka University required higher speeds and route diversity in order to accommodate new, bandwidth-intensive applications and requirements for research, e-learning and other student and faculty needs. Wilcon’s network has solved this requirement by providing Soka University with ample Internet access so students can focus on innovation without any limitations.

“Wilcon’s network expansion to Soka University is a great example of the demand we are seeing throughout Orange County and Southern California for high performance, fiber-based infrastructure,” says Jon DeLuca, CEO of Wilcon. “This type of growth is a priority for Wilcon to support higher education and keep universities and school campuses technologically ahead of the curve. Partnering with Soka University and bringing them more bandwidth and more diversity allows its staff and students to stay connected without bottlenecks.”

Wilcon has an extensive Southern California fiber optic footprint, with recent expansions throughout San Diego and Los Angeles. Our comprehensive portfolio of fiber solutions delivers everything from distance learning to educational video conferencing, school campus security systems and cloud computing capabilities.
