ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) - EDUCAUSE -- Bradford Networks™, the best choice to enable secure network access for corporate issued and personal mobile devices, today announced that its customer, Utah Valley University (UVU), will present a session, "Getting Schooled on BYOD at Utah Valley University: Lessons Learned" at the EDUCAUSE 2013 Conference. This interactive session will outline the steps UVU took to enable secure Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) for its 33,000 students and 5,000 faculty members across its campus. 

Duke Heaton, Network Engineer at UVU 
Eddie Sorensen, Senior Director at UVU

According to the Bradford Networks 'Impact of BYOD on Education' global survey, 85 percent of education institutions currently allow some form BYOD on their school networks, despite network security concerns. For UVU, BYOD is not just a "nice to have" feature, but an integral part of the university experience. In this session, Heaton will walk attendees through the specific steps he took to enable BYOD across the UVU campus and share real-world advice based on his experiences, including:

  • The process of defining UVU's BYOD project and selecting the right technologies
  • Automating the onboarding process for thousands of student-owned devices
  • Provisioning the appropriate level of network access through flexible policies for faculty, students and guests
  • Ensuring devices are safe before they gain access to the network
  • Lessons learned and advice for universities looking to implement similar BYOD projects

When: Wednesday, October 16, 2013, 3:40 - 4:30 p.m. PDT

Where: Meeting Room 209A/B
