Flexible Connectivity for K-12 Schools, Buses & IoT Applications
Gone are the days of blackboards, three-hole punches, and freshly sharpened No. 2 pencils. Today’s K-12 students and teachers depend on laptops, tablets, cloud apps, data-driven instruction, and nonstop Internet connectivity.
Due to widespread shifts such as online testing for Common Core and the rapid rise of cloud-based applications, many school districts are seeking networking solutions that meet their evolving needs without complicating network management or creating new security vulnerabilities. K-12 IT teams are asked to adopt new technologies while solving an array of challenges related to bandwidth, cybersecurity, reliability, flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness.
Because of these needs, 4G LTE-based broadband and WiFi have become vital components of K-12 network architectures. This white paper explores the most popular education technology trends in K-12 education, and the role of 4G LTE, WiFi, cloud management, and all-in-one network solutions in addressing the complexities and time and budget constraints currently facing school district IT departments.
