Transforming the way we learn. . . . .

Symmetry plays a key role in the education sector, helping to transform the way we learn, and enabling teachers to create a more effective and motivated teaching environment, thereby raising education standards. At Symmetry we are at the forefront of the support and delivery of data, voice and converged infrastructures in both further and higher education, along with a number of schools and other agencies within the sector. We have a detailed understanding and direct experience of the key issues affecting deployment within this sector.

As with other public services, more and more demand is being placed on education budgets, with pressure on government and education providers to invest in solutions that will enhance productivity and efficiency, driving down costs whilst providing improved education standards to students of all ages.


Even under shrinking budgets, educators are challenged to increase enrollment, student scores, staff effectiveness, and school safety. Primary and secondary schools are under intense pressure to improve academic performance and graduation rates, which requires district-wide collaboration, flexible and widespread communications, and seamless access to resources. Similarly, institutions of higher education need to attract and retain the best students and faculty.

IT is under pressure to meet the expectations of tech-savvy students while facing the daunting task of keeping the entire campus secure.Avaya uses communications technology to transform and improve the education environment. They streamline communications architecture, integrate a myriad of communications devices, and deliver unified communications and specialized applications that provide staff and students with both information and access.
