“Education is the key pillar of growth for any country. It is of utmost importance that we uplift the quality of education and expand its reach to remote areas as well. Over years, Indian students have migrated to other countries to get better education. Statistics from The U.S. Council of Graduate Schools’ in 2015 show that offers of admission to Indian post-graduate students were up 25 per cent for 2013-14 from the previous year, compared to a 9 per cent increase for all countries.
With Avaya Scopia, more quality education can be provided across the country by helping institutes deliver excellent education in remote areas as well. It will also enable institutes to lower their infrastructure costs by implementing an open, flexible, standards-based communications platform that works with the existing campus applications. The SIP-based platform will help institutes scale across multiple locations regardless of school’s size.”
