If you think about a typical university setting with hundreds of offices, labs, and conferencing needs, you realize few enterprises have as much need for the communications-enhancing benefits of IP as institutions of higher learning do.

A university department administrator I knowhas just e-mailed me a link to Universal IP At Last, an article in the current issue of Campus Technology magazine. The piece mentions several examples of colleges that use IP over campus LANs for such functions as VoIP, streaming media, video conferencing, securitycameras, and remote device management.

There's even a short section on IP-connected projectors that can monitor lamp life and then notify administrators when the power is running low.

The article also has a six-question "Final Exam" section that lets you determine if your network is ready for Universal IP. As with the rest of the piece, this section has relevancy beyond the campus.
