eCmapus New has a piece about the new study by the Association for College and University Technology Advancement (ACUTA). The study indicates the 4 largest categories of devices that use up bandwidth in higher education. The four culprits are not really surprising:
- Video Systems
Obviously video cuts across all 4 of these items, so it is not surprising that one estimate is that 87.7 percent of bandwidth usage in the realm of TV and video content.
According to ACUTA, bandwidth on college campuses has nearly doubled since 2012 to accommodate, but it still may not be enough.
