Zoom is a leader in the video communications industry, tackling unified communications with their cloud platform for video, audio conferencing, collaboration, chat, and webinars across all endpoints.
Microsoft Teams is Microsoft’s all-encompassing workstream collaboration plus unified communications platform – combining meetings, chats, calls, and file sharing with the Office 365 application stack to bring everyone together in a shared workspace.
When it comes to features, both Zoom and Teams enable online meetings, chats, calls, screen sharing, and file sharing.
Microsoft Teams vs Zoom
Features of Microsoft Teams and Zoom
However, going some way to balance out Microsoft’s Office365 integration, Zoom features a wide-ranging partnership and set of technical integrations.
Zoom, as a company, is a much newer organization in comparison to the behemoth that is Microsoft, yet it manages to compete with its aggressive roadmap, and due to the fact that it doesn’t have to worry about managing (and eventually migrating) a set of legacy on-premises customers.
UX (User Interface)
Microsoft Teams poses a bigger challenge as users need to get up to speed on how to interact in different channels. Teams incorporates file sharing and all of the other Office 365 applications baked into Teams.
Although the full workstream collaboration functionality built into Teams clearly allows it to offer a broader surface area of usage and scenarios than Zoom, this precise value is also in some ways its Achilles heel with respect to onboarding.
Both students and faculty need high-performing, reliable access for learning, and personal use---no matter how crowded the area is. In order to do this, campus wireless networks need to deploy the necessary infrastructure.
Capable, reliable WiFi is needed in order to deliver the performance that users expect inside areas such as:
Therefore, a capable WiFi standard is needed to properly support the growing use of mobile devices throughout campus.
Is it safe to use campus WiFi?
Some benefits of WiFi:
Tuskegee University Office of Information Technology (OIT) is embarking on an Information Technology infrastructure upgrade this Spring and Summer. The project includes upgrading the Campus Technology Infrastructure, which will include replacement of network switches and routers in the Data Center, administrative buildings, and student residential buildings.
