Jeff sits down with Perry Correll from Xirrus to discuss how Xirrus Wireless Solutions make a great fit in every BYOD school.
Smart schools improve learning with intelligent wireless networking. Mobility is the new norm, faculty and students expect to connect without wires. They depend on it to support students in a mobile world, schools must fully integrate wireless into their connectivity strategy.
When we grow wireless user density in classrooms, teachers can engage connected students in new ways and enhance learning. When we provide more reliable wireless access with fewer devices school-wide, cost of wireless implementation and management is reduced. And when we deliver flawless wireless access in busy libraries and study halls, student satisfaction rises. Wireless isn’t a nice to have anymore. Done right, it’s a strategic IT infrastructure advantage that accelerates learning and lets schools do more than ever before.
Because of the high density and mobile nature of its users, education is at the forefront of the wireless evolution. Classrooms are now highly dependent on digital resources and the instructional applications they enable. In the primary and secondary school space, there is a drive toward the 21st century (or digital) classroom. Many schools are embracing next generation technologies and programs that expand learning options, such as 1:1 laptop-to-student and bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives. These initiatives create demands on existing Wi-Fi infrastructures that can increase by a factor of 10 in a single school year. A high-performance, reliable wireless solution is imperative.
