Is the high volume of Wi-Fi Devices penetrating your education networks? — Are you ready?

Education Case Study

Today’s faculty and administrators have more technological tools at their disposal than ever to help tech—savvy students - Providing faculty and students with Wi-Fi services is no longer an option but a necessity to survive in an increasingly competitive market. A bad Wi-Fi experience can adversely impact the effectiveness of the student and the educator.

The BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon is having a major impact on educational institutions and as a result you need to take a hard look at the following questions:

  • How do you plan to secure the many Wi-Fi clients entering your network?
  • How do you manage your wired and wireless networks?
  • Do you have the bandwidth, the density and security to accommodate the onslaught of Wi-Fi clients entering your network?

  • Flexible communications connectivity - ideal for student dorm rooms.
