Forget textbooks, pencils and binders. These days, laptops and high-speed Internet access are a requirement in most learning environments.

As technology continues to change how schools operate and students and staff communicate, RST can help you stay ahead of the curve. No more slow or dropping internet connections. Our all-fiber network provides Internet and broadband speeds up to 10 gigabits per second. That translates to a faster speed – two or three seconds per transmission – that can improve the way you teach, collaborate and work. We know. We’ve worked with many colleges, including Gardner Webb University in Boiling Springs, N.C., and Cleveland Community College in Shelby, N.C. and have heard the accolades first-hand.

Our university network supports voice and Internet, as well as videoconferencing, distance learning (both live and recorded) and security services. This includes:

  • Connecting classrooms to distant locations with high-quality video streaming
  • Allowing researchers at any location to exchange large digital files and access super-computers
  • Enabling multi-campus collaborative research projects
  • Facilitating the use of high-definition learning tools

With the progression of technology, educational institutions today must maintain reliable and secure networking solutions. RST is here to help.


[Fiber optics allows] Indiana’s colleges and universities to collaborate at a much higher level than was ever thought possible. It strengthens every aspect of the state’s educational offerings, and it greatly expands Indiana’s capacity to conduct basic scientific research. It also ensures that Indiana continues its growth as one of the nation’s premier destinations for life sciences and biotechnology investment.”
