The school has implemented a WiFi solution that is ready now to meet the challenges of the present and the future, without forklift upgrades to the WiFi control system. Being software based, it is a simple case of upgrading to the latest version, when the school sees the need. Security was improved by implementing stateful firewalling on each access point and the school’s campus wide WiFi and Guest Access BYOD aspirations became a reality.
New technologies like 802.11ac can be deployed in the network where it makes sense. The school is also considering Mobile Device Management and education applications from ADTRAN partners.
