eSchool News

Biggest challenge: With reliance on mobility for K-12 curriculum increasing, the demand for wireless in our district has also increased.

Due to these changes, we realized we needed to increase the number of access points (APs) we were deploying to one AP per classroom.

Ask a Tech Teacher

Protocols for these mobile devices have little in common today with how they were addressed a decade ago.
