Educating the 21st Century Workforce Requires a 21st Century IT Infrastructure
IT infrastructure must do more than keep campus services running. In today’s technology-driven world, institutions are focused on how to educate the next generation in an increasingly technology-centric learning environment. IT infrastructure plays a pivotal role in their ability to do so. Institutions need an infrastructure that can accommodate changing requirements.
FNT has solutions to help transform your institution’s IT and cable infrastructure into a modern technological system that can adapt to the evolving needs of students, faculty and administrators.
A modern infrastructure:
Supports business continuity
Adapts to market-driven changing technology requirements
Provides services more efficiently and at a lower cost
Enables institutions to demonstrate financial responsibility

A tool like FNT Command, that simplifies management of the university’s multifaceted technology networks. It enables users to easily extract the insights needed to make informed decisions about how best to deliver the highest quality education. A comprehensive solution like FNT Command is the backbone of a modern 21st century IT infrastructure.
FNT Command Provides Cable Infrastructure Management
at DESY and Heidelberg University
Institutions of learning have vast, complex network infrastructures. Those that are research oriented even more so. DESY, one of the world’s leading accelerator centers, is a prime example. With more than 3,000 researchers from over 40 countries using their large-scale facilities each year, DESY relies on FNT Command to manage several hundred kilometers of coaxial and fiber-optic cables.
Read in detail how FNT Command makes it possible for DESY to support workflow processes, change management functionalities, and overall system configurability, all while maintaining high availability and operational efficiency of network services.
Universities and research centers invest in the latest IT technologies in order to boost their appeal and support digital transformation of teaching and research activities. To cope with the demands on high-tech infrastructures, a structured management system is essential.
Read on to learn why the Heidelberg University Data Center opted for the cloud-based version of FNT Command. You can also discover how it uses efficient deployment methods to provide flawless IT services every single day to students, faculty, and researchers.

Complete Visibility into Every Network Asset
There’s one requirement to achieving a modern IT infrastructure: visibility. Visibility lets you ensure all assets and connections are working properly and determine if the campus’ current and projected needs are being met. Visibility enables you to find trouble anywhere in your network and fix it so service is not disrupted. Visibility enables you to anticipate changing service needs and meet them.
FNT gives you this visibility. So you can:
Perform hassle-free construction and facility upgrades ▼
Prevent service interruption by documenting end-to-end network connections and housing the information in a dynamically updating central data repository.
Justify grant and endowment spending ▼
Assign all IT and network services to internal departments for easy allocation of infrastructure costs and to document how resources are being used.
Offer state of the art classrooms and research facilities ▼
Ensure bandwidth and infrastructure keep up with rising digital demands and support the tools and technologies instructors and students require.
Support increasing capacity demands without increasing cost ▼
Automate and streamline processes to provide better service at lower costs.
Support changing delivery models ▼
Enable new technologies and architectures as demanded by emerging digital requirements.
Simplify network complexity ▼
Harmonize the many technologies and network structures that have merged over time, so all are seamlessly integrated into one centralized IT management system.
