This Thursday, February 14th at 9am PT, Chin Song, Director of Technology at Milpitas USD in Silicon Valley, will be joining us to share his experiences crafting a wireless network from scratch and bolstering the existing wired infrastructure.
With over 2,000 Chromebooks currently issued to students, and another 8,000 on the way, Chin is excited to prepare his district for 21st century learning and increased technology initiatives, like 1:1 deployments and BYOD. Teachers can now work together and share ideas remotely, increasing the time they can spend teaching. Students are collaborating via the Internet, sharing documents online and video conferencing, enabling them to expand their learning environment.
With the cloud architecture, Chin has granular visibility into how students and faculty are using the network on their devices and what types of applications they’re using. Cloud-managed WiFi and switching is providing Chin increased network control in a number of ways:
- Real-time management from a web-based dashboard, for both wired and wireless, for on-the-fly troubleshooting
- CIPA-compliant, integrated traffic shaping and content filtering
- Remote identification of switch port usage and testing of Ethernet cables, facilitating creation of new learning areas
- Data-rich packet capturing and easy to implement QoS capabilities, ensuring flawless multimedia streaming and collaboration
Join us on Thursday to see Chin’s network in action!
