Converge ICT taps De La Salle Philippines to enhance educational service
Amplifying further its efforts to benefit academic institutions with better internet connectivity, Converge ICT tied up with De La Salle Philippines (DLSP), now serving as a major provider for DLSP sites in Luzon.
"It has been one of the company’s thrusts to equip academic institutions with better internet connectivity through the capabilities of pure fiber technology. We believe access to information is a necessity for their community to be able to advance and compete,” said Jesus Romero, chief operating officer of Converge ICT.
For DLSP, extending the best learning environment for their student means allowing them to access to interactive, personalized instruction, which has been found to improve learning outcomes. According to James Sy, director of IT services office of DLSU-M, Lasallian schools have been using the internet to have a more conducive and advanced learning environment.
“We conduct webinars once or twice a year in which speakers from abroad share their knowledge through video conferencing. We have also started livestreaming our graduation ceremonies so that we can extend the viewership to those who could not be physically with us. During these activities, we need a reliable partner as we require a great deal of bandwidth to facilitate these events,” Sy added. “What we really need is a partner that understands the varying requirements of educational institutions like us.”
Meanwhile, Ricson Singson Que, senior director of the IT Department of DLS-CSB said that “we are happy that we found a partner in Converge ICT, who has been reliable and flexible in delivering our needs.”
Converge ICT has rolled out thousands of kilometers of fiber optic cables beneath the ground using the latest micro-trenching technology. The company offers a variety of solutions fit for various industries. With almost two decades of experience in ICT, Converge ICT has expanded its presence from Central Luzon to Metro Manila and South Luzon.
