Illinois. 4,700 students. Replaced Ubiquiti with Ruckus Cloud Wi-Fi.
In days of old, learning involved rulers, chalkboards, creaky desks and plenty of recess. Today, technology has become a central part of learning, and educators know how important it is to keep students engaged. The tech-savvy generation of students—and educators—uses laptops, smartphones and iPads in the classroom. On average, students are bringing two to three devices each to school for use inside and outside the classroom, and they expect them to be constantly connected. A high-performance, reliable Wi-Fi network is crucial, and so is support for high surges in network usage. Belleville Township High School District 201 in Illinois understood this, so when the network could no longer keep up with high-density campus-wide, it decided to upgrade the network.
