Primary Education

Elevate the Digital Learning Experience with Safe and Reliable Network Access

The classroom of tomorrow promises an amazing education. Blended learning, flipped classrooms, video delivery of digital curriculum, video conference and other modern learning models can better engage students and help educators be more effective. But they also create new challenges for schools and their overtaxed IT teams.

Instead of lesson plans depending solely on skilled teachers, they also depend on consistent, reliable connectivity to school networks for access to educational resources.

It's enough to make school and IT leaders feel like they're a grade or two behind. Ruckus can help. We power the connected modern classroom with grade-A Wi-Fi and edge switching performance coupled with simple, market-leading secure onboarding and policy management.

Ruckus Networks And Soter Technologies Enhance School Safety

Today’s school district administrators face a far more complex set of challenges than they did even a decade ago. In addition to providing a top-notch education, they must also ensure the safety and security of their students, faculty and staff in an unfortunately more complicated world. For primary education, Soter’s DigitalFlyTM product line includes a suite of school safety tools for detection and prevention of bullying, cyberbullying, vaping, and smoking.

Finding a Digital Solution for your Classroom

Are you a teacher tasked with running Wi-Fi or Google Admin Console? Are you the IT department, tasked with everything related to computers and networks? Are you managing an IT department, tasked with making sure campus networks are scalable, secure and reliable? No matter who you are, from small school to large district, Ruckus Networks has solutions for classroom, campus and community connectivity. Read on!

Ready to Grow Your Student-Centered Classroom?

About 80% of schools report they are between Phase 2 and Phase 3, meaning they are moving to pervasive 1:1 or BYOD computing, with student-centered classrooms.  Is this you?  Where do you plan to be in 5 years?  Will you be adopting more video for learning, like Zoom conferencing with guest speakers or Virtual Reality field trips? Or implementing school safety with CCTV cameras and digital displays?

Create an Infrastructure That Supports Your Growing Network

Each Phase requires an assessment of your IT priorities, which is likely to include broadband and network scaling, securing student data privacy, and mobile learning . As mobile learning increases the number of devices and video content on your network, your network infrastructure should be able to support the demand.

Check out the top three challenges for IT in education.

Why Choose Ruckus For My School?

As your school continues its digital transformation to 1:1 mobile learning, Ruckus helps you address the top three challenges of school IT: network scaling, securing student data privacy, and network reliability for digital instruction. Our goal is to help you provide a safe and reliable learning environment at an affordable price.

Ruckus Access Points Outperform the Competition

Ruckus was tested and independently verified as the only vendor able to deliver stall-free video to 60 devices at once, both with and without data loading at the same time. No other vendor came close. Testing was conducted with the Ruckus R610 using Chromebooks, uncached streaming video and conducted in a classroom setting.

Need more convincing? Get the details on how Ruckus outperforms five competing 802.11ac wireless access points in this ‘behind the scenes’ video, or download a copy of the Divergent Dynamics report. Still need more convincing?

Building a Wired and Wireless Infrastructure

For many schools, a Wi-Fi access point in every other classroom may provide sufficient coverage and capacity, with edge switching to carry the data back to a closet or core switch and eventually to your Internet or Cloud service provider. For larger schools, or districts, Ruckus offers centralized management and security of your connections - and with multi-tenancy and high-availability options has provided Counties and Ministries of Education with the ability to manage the networks of their constituent schools.
