The strength and security of wireless access points make it possible for students to learn with tablets.

Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2013 – VoIP Supply’s Edu Assist Program has helped hundreds of educational institutions deploy VoIP phone systems.

Now, this assistance program is aiding the new mobile technology trend in education to help schools get the service, support, and expertise they need to set up a wireless network.

Wireless devices such as WiFi enabled tablets, laptops, wireless VoIP phones, and wireless printers all rely on a strong and secure wireless local area network (WLAN).

For larger WLAN deployments, such as a campus, VoIP Supply’s Edu Assist Program recommends scalable solutions from two of the top wireless access point (WAP) manufacturers:

Ruckus ZoneFlex:

Offered for both indoor and outdoor functionality. Combines power, simplicity, dynamic beamforming, and adaptive meshing for great WiFi flexibility and function.

ZoneFlex outdoor access points are perfect for outdoor areas where running Ethernet cable isn’t possible. Indoor models offer great coverage from fewer access points for large indoor deployments.

Cisco Wireless Access Points:

Remote areas of a campus that were previously out of WiFi range are no match for Cisco WAPs that expand network connectivity, eliminate the need to run additional cabling, and deliver a wireless signal with the same security, standards, and encryption levels of a wired network.

Cisco WAPs provide WiFi access anywhere on-site for students, employees, and guests while continuously scanning the network for malicious attacks from hackers.

The 2013 National Survey on Mobile Technology for K-12 Education, sponsored by Amplify and conducted by market research firms IESD and STEM Market Impact, show some interesting results from over 500 district leaders.

Specifically, more than half of surveyed district leaders are now using mobile technology in 25% of their schools with a growing popularity for tablet use in classrooms.

“Wireless devices are commonplace and applications for their use are always expanding,” said VoIP Supply CEO, Ben Sayers. “The ease of setting up wireless networks is driving the strong demand for game-changing mobile learning in schools.”
