As more and more schools look to support new digital initiatives like BYOD, 1:1, the internet of things, and online learning applications, school wireless networks continue to struggle to keep pace with it all.
Today’s students carry on average 2-3 devices with them at all times, be it laptops, smartphones, tablets and even wearables.
The majority of K-12 students (62%) have said they would like to increase the use of mobile devices in the classroom, and as of today, students are spending up to 9 hours every day consuming digital media, most of which is streaming video.
As a school or school district with only so much budget spend on wireless infrastructure, you need to get the most bang for your buck.
However, while product choice does play a part in being successful, what really produces the results you want and need is having the right level of engineering and the right wireless network design to maximize your performance and get the most out of the budget you do have.
There are three critical issues frustrating school IT teams today when it comes to supporting their wireless and/or digital learning initiatives. Check out the infographic below from Exinda to learn what they are and how you can start to fix them.
