The school expects to improve its network performance for their real-time learnings applications
US-based The Catherine Cook School has replaced its existing access point infrastructure with Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays to gain better network performance for their one-to-one computer initiative and real-time learning applications used by students and teachers.
The transition to the Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays has provided the school with the necessary bandwidth for Wi-Fi to be their primary network connection.
Bill Mierisch, director of technology at Catherine Cook School, said: Xirrus helped us expand our network capacity with both excellent products and great ideas. With over 90% of our clients able to use the 5Ghz band, our capacity for connections increased exponentially with Xirrus’s multi-radio Arrays. What’s more, during our roll-out, Xirrus helped us identify a problem that had lurked without our knowledge on a legacy server, which resulted in a dramatic drop-off in support calls relating to client connectivity.
Eric Dean, regional manager at Xirrus, said: The school quickly realized the need for a better medium and called us in to see what we could do. Working together, we developed a plan and successfully implemented a Wi-Fi system that will support their students and staff for years to come.
