Enrich in-classroom, remote teaching, and learning experiences

Creating innovative solutions to bring your school's vision to life

When information technology initiatives align with the strategic goals of an academic institution, the impact can be transformative. Integrating the right technologies can empower faculty to enhance students’ learning experience, create a competitive advantage, and allow administrators to be more efficient in their mission.

Union College is Light Years Ahead

Union College in New Jersey is the first of New Jersey’s associate degree colleges, with about 10,000 students. As an Aspen Prize semi-finalist, they are named in the top 25 community college across the country.

Like all higher education institutions, the pandemic affected teaching and learning for teachers and students at Union College. The sudden shift to remote and hybrid learning became a considerable challenge for the school

Aspire used unconventional thinking in AV design to work within the budget constraints for the college. The solution enabled teachers to implement learning modules and teach in a traditional setting while remaining remote, an approach that is vastly more effective than them only on a laptop web camera.

Here’s their story:

Babson College Transitions 650 Courses to Wholly Digital Experiences

Bay State College Leverages Cloud-Managed SDWAN to Provide Contact Tracing for Safe Return to Campus

Bay State College strategized a safe return to the school campus. College CIO Jeffrey E. Myers, together with his IT Team, wanted to adopt a layered approach that could offer multiple solutions, including contact tracing, which health departments consider one of the most important efforts to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Also, the college knew it could benefit from an upgrade to its wireless networking capabilities

Myers, with the support of his IT Team, came up with a unique and novel concept to provide unobtrusive, contactless contact tracing via a campus-wide Wi-Fi network. More specifically, they used Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Wi-Fi radios to scan for and locate devices transmitting BLE beacons.

The college partnered with Aspire Technology Partners as a trusted partner and leader in Cisco Meraki solutions to leverage Cisco Meraki’s unparalleled wireless networking capabilities to support a safe and healthy return to workplaces and learning spaces. Watch the full story to learn more.

Protecting students, teachers, and staff are a top priority for every school. Watch how Cisco Emergency Responder (CER) helps protect our community by providing first responders with the necessary information needed to pinpoint the ‘dispatchable location and quickly reach the caller. CER reduces the response time to threatening situations or any circumstance that puts the school community in harm’s way


While schools continue to invest in protection against physical security risks and natural disasters, there just hasn’t been the same type of proactive commitment to cybersecurity – and it shows. With a historical lack of cybersecurity infrastructure and awareness training, education will continue to be one of the most targeted industries by cybercriminals – and you’ve got to do something about it. See how Aspire can help you keep our schools safe.
