Classroom Wi-Fi: Is Your School Equipped for Mobile Connectivity ?




Computer-based Learning is far more engaging to today’s tech-savvy students than outdated textbooks. As a result, digital learning is gathering momentum in schools across Ireland.

Schools are now supplying Tablets and/or Laptops to their pupils. In some cases  students are bringing their own devices such as Smartphones to school for the purposes of learning (BYOD) but this is leading to new challenges for school networks and bringing about IT resource constraints. To meet these challenges, Irish schools need reliable WIFI with strong security, excellent coverage and connections that don’t drop all delivered through an easy to use, scalable, single management point.

Is your School faced with the following Challenges:

  • You need access to the Internet from parts of the school that are not Ethernet cabled
  • Only a few classrooms or locations are currently Wi-Fi supported
  • The speed of access from the Wi-Fi points is not sufficient to cater for 30+ students using a variety of devices.
  • Different density requirements in various locations?
  • The Wi-Fi is NOT reliable and demands teacher intervention to restart the devices
  • A requirement for easier management and deployment of Wi-Fi devices ?
