Posted by Louise Peter on Oct 31, 2017

It is a classic urban legend horror scene - a young woman is home alone (she is usually a babysitter). She receives creepy phone calls asking "Have you checked the kids?" The babysitter calls the police and the police set up watch outside the house to keep the babysitter safe. The police trace the phone calls and to their horror, they discover that the calls are not coming from another location, but they are coming from inside the house.

A+ WiFi on the Big Days and Every Day
Posted by Jeff Olson on Oct 24, 2017

Johnny is excited - well, not really - because tomorrow is state-wide, academic-testing day at his school. For weeks now, his teachers have told him just how important this day is for him and his school. Even his parents were instructed on how they can help prepare Johnny for the big day: ensure he gets enough sleep, has a quality breakfast, and arrives to school on-time. Johnny isn’t thrilled by this extra attention.

The Region 6 ESC and Mojo Partnership, Opening the Doors for Digital Learning Throughout Texas
Posted by Erika Hashemi on May 15, 2017

In March of 2016, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced the launch of the Classroom Connectivity Initiative, designed to facilitate access to technology in a world where learning is no longer confined to the pages of a book or the walls of a classroom. Working with the Texas Education Agency and Education Service Centers like Region 6, the State aims to equip every classroom with robust connectivity to support each student’s digital learning experience.

Securing 30,000 Students and Beyond
Posted by Erika Hashemi on Apr 3, 2017

On any given day, the Santa Rosa County School District has 30,000 students accessing WiFi across 31 elementary, middle and high schools.  As WiFi is quickly becoming the prevalent network access technology in schools, Santa Rosa knew they needed to have a secure and reliable WiFi network in order to provide a pristine user experience on an ongoing basis.

The School District needed a comprehensive WiFi network monitoring and security solution that would provide complete visibility and control of the wireless airspace, all of which was lacking in the wireless controller solution previously deployed. With a small central IT staff to cover the 31 school locations, the ability to remotely manage and quickly troubleshoot WiFi networks was critical.

What are the Realities of WiFi Troubleshooting?
Posted by Sean Blanton on Oct 18, 2016

It goes without saying that WiFi can be, how should I put it, a bit temperamental at times. To be fair, any mode of digital communication that occurs over-the-air is subject to subtle and invisible fluctuations that pop up in the surrounding environment at any time. But when you add on top of that the necessity that WiFi provide an uninterrupted, easy-to-access and (above all else) fast experience, you can begin to imagine the tremendous stress WiFi administrators must feel every day. But imagination doesn’t help us quantify the problem, nor fix it. That’s where a brand new survey by ZK Research comes into play.

Benchmark: C-120 vs. Aerohive AP250 in the Classroom

WiFi is a Utility, and Needs Capacity Planning

When is the last time you said: “Wow, this WiFi is great!”? You don’t really notice it when it works. You are more likely to say: “This WiFi is crap” when it doesn’t meet your expectations. WiFi is no longer a convenience, it’s an essential utility like electricity. You would like it work every time and without hesitation, like turning on a light.

Like the power grid, one of the biggest challenges in designing a wireless network is capacity planning. The goal of capacity planning is to determine how many access points are needed to provide a good user experience. Deploying too many APs is a waste of money and can make performance worse, but deploying too few will cause user experience problems (the equivalent of brownouts) when an AP becomes oversubscribed.
