Broadband Matters

WNC Broadband Project series on broadband continues at the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute with Marc Czarnecki learning from Lamar Owen, Chief Technology Officer at PARI… why broadband matters with video conferencing for education.

Broadband latency is critical to ‘glitch-freeness’ as Lamar states.

Bandwidth is really key. Latency is key reliability for glitch-freeness which is very important to the student experience to keep the educational experience from being impeded by technical issues.
