Many schools are realising the need for a managed wireless infrastructure to support their changing IT requirements with the emergence of portable devices.
Is your school interested in iPads? Perhaps you would like to invest in laptops and a laptop trolley but not sure whether your wireless is sufficient?
Traditionally, many schools have a small number of adhoc wireless access points to provide them with some wireless provision. The problem is that these devices cannot be centrally managed and it is not always possible to report on performance, allow guest access etc.
A Managed Wireless Infrastructure uses a controller to join all of the wireless access points together. The wireless network can be configured centrally, allowing security parameters to be configured much more easily. The managed wireless system will react to the number of users and distribute devices among access points automatically when users walk around your school site.
