Volunteer State Community College is a publicly supported two-year community college located in Gallatin, Tennessee. Their challenges are to support growing student population while reducing operational costs, cost-effectively refresh computer labs to comply with state mandate for computer-based instruction and free up time for IT team to focus on online learning initiatives. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They have implemented Cisco Virtualization eXperience Infrastructure (VXI) with Citrix XenDesktop and replaced laptops in computer lab with Cisco Virtualization eXperience Client (VXC) endpoints. The results of implementing Cisco were lowered desktop costs by 30 percent and reduced energy consumption, reduced desktop management time, freeing IT team to focus on other initiatives and built foundation for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy.
