Last Friday the new iPhone 6 was released and like millions of lucky iPhone lovers I was able to get my hands on one. Apple packed so many amazing features into this latest iPhone and to me none more important than it’s 802.11ac compatibility.
But this also got me thinking…
This is just the latest device to incorporate the latest standard and with Apple announcing their “Apple Watch” our school wireless networks are once again going to be flooded with new devices, if they aren’t already.
11ac offers schools the ability to handle and support this new technology to it’s full potential, giving students, faculty members and administrators the best opportunity to leverage these new devices, not only today but for whatever comes around the corner next.
Below is an infographic from Aruba Networks illustrating exactly what 802.11ac has to offer and why it should be part of every schools technology plan.
802.11ac is a huge game changer for every wireless network. With the recent changes to the E-Rate Program school leaders and administrators have an incredible chance to take advantage and upgrade their school wireless networks with this latest standard.
It seems like everyday something new is being announced or released and it can be almost impossible to implement and keep up with these advancements. With a properly designed mobility system you can stop reacting and scrambling and actually have a technology plan in place that allows you to scale and adapt.
