Published 29 Jan 2016

East Grand Rapids Public Schools’ three elementary schools, one middle, and one high school rank in the top 5% of schools in the state of Michigan. Fundamental to the success of the district is a solid network infrastructure that enables their 1:1 computing and BYOD programs for 4,500 users and 3,000 devices. In order to remain successful, East Grand Rapids Public Schools worked with Extreme Networks to deploy a new network solution that would address wireless connectivity needs, provide visibility and control into the network, and allow easy on-boarding for devices entering the network.
