What factors are related to the development cost of a smart campus system


The development cost of a smart campus system is an important factor in determining the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the smart campus. In order to reduce the cost, universities should take into consideration various factors when planning for their smart campus

Infrastructure of the whole campus

Network infrastructure
Network quality
Network system 
Network protocol
Network security
Network management, configuration and monitoring of network resources. 

Network quality 

Network quality is the most important factor. The size of the campus, the number of students and staff, and distance to city are related to network quality. In addition, there are many devices on campus (e.g., cameras). 

Management staff and personnel 

Management staff and personnel are critical to the success of a smart campus system. The number of people required, their skills and experience, how to get them, how you keep them and train them on the latest technology all need to be considered when developing your system. 

The right people will be able to keep your system up-to-date with new software as it becomes available. They will also have the knowledge needed for troubleshooting problems or issues that arise during operation. They should be able to help you design for future expansion if appropriate for your campus needs when planning out your solution. 

Requirements for the system 

The requirements for your smart campus system should be clear, complete, consistent, reasonable and practical. Let’s look at each of these in more detail:

Clear – The requirements must be understandable by all stakeholders in the project. They can’t be too vague or ambiguous as to what is being requested.
Complete – All stakeholders should understand exactly what is expected from them in order to meet the requirements set out by the system. This includes not just how they will carry out their tasks but also any documentation that needs to be created or updated during this process (such as detailed plans). 
Consistent – All stakeholders should understand how their work will fit into larger processes related to implementation of this smart campus system; both long-term planning such as laying foundation stones for new buildings or short term activities like cleaning windows outside those buildings on an annual basis after construction has finished up but before students arrive on campus again next year!

Smart campus option 

You can use the Q-NEX smart campus solution to achieve this. For example, when you want to broadcast a video or audio file on the display screen, you need to plan ahead to make sure that there is enough time for your system to be loaded with content. Then, you should consider how long each piece of content is going to be broadcast and set up recurrence or automatic start mode accordingly. 

The AV distribution solution is mainly used in large-scale events such as concerts and conferences. You can use it to transmit audio and video signals from a broadcasting center through cables or wireless links (such as Wi-Fi) so that users in different conference rooms can watch them simultaneously through their own devices at any time they like. 

Another aspect worth mentioning here is scheduling tasks; for example, if an event lasts for more than one day, then all related tasks must be scheduled beforehand so that they may run smoothly once the event begins. These tasks include playing music during breaks between sessions; switching between different live broadcasts during breaks; displaying advertisements before/after each session starts/ends; etcetera… 

Development cost in planning stage

 The cost of planning
 The cost of research 
The cost of development
The cost of testing The cost of deployment Development cost in operating stage

Operating cost is the cost of maintaining, managing and operation of the system. In operating stage, you need to hire a team that can maintain and operate your campus system. This team will be responsible for any problem arising in the system during operation. The operating costs could be high if you don’t have enough knowledge on how to manage and maintain the campus smartly. 

Development cost in maintenance stage After the development cost, there is one more important item for a smart campus system, which is maintenance cost. The maintenance costs are divided into two parts: Replacing or repairing the system Upgrading the system Before purchasing a smart campus solution, a university needs to seriously consider what type of development cost it can afford. As we all know, the development cost of a smart campus system is the cost to install the system. The development cost includes hardware, software, and installation costs. It’s usually a one-time cost that universities have to pay before they can start using their smart campus solution. 

The University needs to seriously consider what type of development cost it can afford before purchasing a smart campus solution. If you don’t have enough money for your smart campus development project, then you should consider other options such as implementing cloud services or focusing on improving your current network infrastructure instead of buying new equipment for every building on campus. 


In conclusion, we would like to point out that the development cost of smart campus systems will be different from one university to another. It is related not only to the size, number and type of buildings, but also to the geographical location and other factors. Therefore, before purchasing a smart campus solution, a university needs to seriously consider what type of development cost it can afford.
