Providing Technology for Educational Excellence and Safety

Whether your institution is a university, college or K-12 school, Anixter understands your need to provide information through data, video and voice in a safe and comfortable learning environment.

Modern Learning

As more and more classrooms are being supplemented with online learning, and mobile devices; today's students need to be connected. Internet access has become a development imperative and high-speed data capabilities are needed in classrooms and campuses to deliver seamless educational experiences.

A Safe Environment

Managing security for one building is difficult. Managing security for campus-like environments with several buildings, open areas, underground areas and remote buildings is a significant organizational and resource challenge. Managing security from the perimeter to the interior, either on-site or remotely, requires a combination of integrated technology and technical know-how. 

K–12 Technology Solutions

Innovative classrooms can enhance early education by introducing children to the latest technologies earlier to develop the skills they need to complete primary and secondary education milestones and eventually promote college and work place readiness. High-speed wired and wireless technologies to the classroom are essential to the reliable efficient delivery of data to make your digital learning environment successful.

These infrastructure technologies are essential in educational environments:
