Fusion Connex provides full-service Wi-Fi network implementations throughout New England for the Education, Hospitality, Healthcare and SMB markets. Last year, we completed a Wi-Fi installation for the Hooksett, NH school district in preparation for the 2011-2012 school year. We proposed Ruckus Wireless' ZoneFlex technology to the school district because in our experience, there is nothing better in the market for meeting the need for more reliable, higher speed and secure Wi-Fi.
Today, schools are beginning to experience the need for not one, but two to four personal mobile devices per person who want connectivity on the school's network. School technologists are beginning to explore best practices for implementing BYOD, Bring Your Own Device, addressing security policies and the ability of their wireless infrastructure to efficiently handle the plethora of new devices that staff and students are bringing to school. Hooksett has launched its own BYOD pilot, allowing staff and some students to "bring your own device". The pilot is intended to determine if the district should allow its students and teachers to access the network with their personal mobile devices. Key to this program is the rock-solid, robust and secure Ruckus Wireless network that Hooksett contracted Fusion Connex to install.
Read more about Hooksett's BYOD pilot in an article written by Karen D. Schwartz, "Districts Large and Small Embrace BYOD".
Are you a school technologist ready to embrace the capabilities to support BYOD? We suggest you watch this webinar published by Ruckus Wireless, "Ruckus Wireless Tech & Learning K-12 Webinar: BYOD, A Blessing or a Curse in Today's K-12 Instructional Environment."You'll hear from Ruckus Wireless on what it takes for a successful BYOD strategy as well as Q&A from fellow school technologists.
For schools and districts throughout New England, Fusion Connex is available to provide free consultation and site surveys in support of the increasing demand for coverage, reliability and user density.
