Traditional networks drive much of the communications and information in schools today. Schools today rely on their networks to:
- Deliver coursework, teaching tools and other curriculum
- Provide access to IT resources as well as the Internet and information repositories
- Facilitate communication among students, teaching staff, parents and the Education Ministry
- Enable multimedia and interactive learning applications
Wireless networks give schools a straightforward, cost-effective way to maximize all the benefits of a school's existing network. By going wireless, schools can build a pervasive, universally-accessible networking environment without sacrificing cost, performance or security.
Key advantages and benefits
- Students and teaching staff gain "anytime, anywhere" access to the school network and the Internet, encouraging usage, communication and spontaneity
- Time-consuming installation and expensive cabling costs are reduced drastically
- Upgrading and expanding the network becomes extremely flexible
- Outdoor classrooms and mobile learning become practical, even in remote locations that were previously inaccessible or impractical
- Easier access to shared networked devices and services like printers, scanners, servers and Internet gateways
- With enough mobile devices, any classroom can become a networked computer lab.
