Optimizing Your Network Infrastructure for the Mobile Device Influx

  • As technology becomes more and more ingrained in schools and many districts are implementing wireless technology to help with things like state online testing requirements, the demand for a 21st century classroom has rapidly grown. Wi-Fi devices are increasingly being used as part of K-12 learning programs like 1 to 1 learning, while more schools are allowing students to use their own devices. As a result, reliable and consistent wireless connectivity has become a key requirement for instruction, but is often the biggest challenge school IT departments face.
  • Aerohive’s chief Wi-Fi architect, Devin Akin, will be moderating a panel titled, “Optimizing Your Network Infrastructure for the Mobile Device Influx.” This presentation is designed to help attendees tackle the challenge of implementing mobile-friendly Wi-Fi in schools.

Cloud-Enabled Wi-Fi Solutions to be Presented


“With 35 schools and over 20,000 students, our school district deals with thousands of mobile devices on a daily basis. We know first hand the many pain points school IT departments face in implementing Wi-Fi,” said Phil Hardin executive director of technology for the Rowan-Salisbury School System. “We’ve been fortunate enough to find an approach that allows us to provide reliable Wi-Fi connectivity, while also being cost-effective and easily scalable. We’re excited to speak at ISTE and help other schools find an approach that works best for their needs, while supporting today’s enriched learning technologies.”

“ISTE is a well respected education technology conference and one that attracts some of the nation’s most tech-savvy educators and IT directors,” said Devin Akin, chief wi-fi architect, Aerohive Networks. “We’re honored to have been selected to speak at such a prestigious event and look forward to assisting like-minded school IT administrators in addressing the Wi-Fi challenges they face in today’s mobile first environments.”
