From Wall Street to K-12: Supporting New Technology Initiatives

Bill McSorley created a powerful and scalable network to support new technology innovations in his school district.

Bill McSorley, Chief Information and Technology Officer, brought an innovative technology perspective to Edison Township Public Schools.  Coming from a background on Wall Street, Bill was tasked with developing, scaling, and managing a new K-12 network that could support new trends and uses for technology in the education environment.

Yesterday, Bill joined us for a live webinar to describe how he overhauled a patchwork network, consisting of consumer-grade routers, to a flourishing network that he can control on the fly from anywhere.  Taking only a week and a half, Bill deployed the Cisco Meraki solution to three schools in his district, now supporting new initiatives like classroom iPads and laptop labs.

With fewer IT staff and a smaller budget than he was used to in his previous roles with big businesses, Bill needed a powerful and reliable solution with simple management.  He found this with Meraki, a solution that “blew the competition away” and even gave him the ability to use the network to provide a place for community relief after Hurricane Sandy devastated the area.

Watch here to find out how Meraki provides Bill with deep visibility and control over his network and how he has deployed our free MDM solution to thousands of devices throughout his district.
