"Given Apogee's successful track record within the SUNY system, we know our decision to select Apogee is a timely and essential move, allowing us to further evolve to meet the growing demands of our students, stay ahead technologically and to protect student retention in campus housing," said Kyle Brown, CIO at SUNY Potsdam & Canton "We bid farewell to subpar service and limited support from big cable companies, and look forward to bringing our students the best in wifi and support services that are available in higher education today."

Initiating this fall 2015 school year, SUNY Canton, Delhi and Potsdam students will now benefit from the following Apogee services:

  • High-speed networks with greater mobility, unrestricted access and bandwidth
  • Wall-to-wall wireless access that extends to more common areas, including laundry and game rooms
  • 24-hour support and troubleshooting by phone, email, chat and text
  • Around-the-clock network support for all student devices including desktops, laptops, PDAs and DVRs
  • Dedicated full-time Apogee coordinator to provide on-site student support
  • Enhanced network protections, testing and 24-hour network monitoring

SUNY Cobleskill will also offer its students Apogee's high-quality distribution of Video-over-IP, including all-digital, HD, and DVR packages, and custom channel lineups.

"We are honored to welcome the addition of these four prestigious schools amongst our established SUNY partnerships," said Chuck Brady, chief executive officer of Apogee. "We believe that our latest clients, like their SUNY peers, will come to rely on Apogee's commitment to technological excellence to lay the foundation for their students' academic success and quality of life. Together, we look forward to fostering an environment where students thrive, and to help fulfill the potential of every SUNY student."
