Forsyth County Schools, a public school district in Forsyth County, just north of Atlanta, Georgia, is a notably forward-thinking, technology-reliant school system. Serving 50,000 students and employing over 6,500 staff, it is one of the largest school districts in the state, and they’re growing rapidly. Forsyth grows by an additional 1,500-1,800 students every year, and they’re known for looking ahead for opportunities to enrich student learning experience through technology.



  • Ability to deploy access points in every classroom
  • Adequate bandwidth to support BYOD and a multitude of native device
  • Seamless support services
  • Robust network infrastructure to accommodate continuous growth
"Every week, we're hitting a new high watermark for bandwidth consumption or device count. With the old hardware, we wouldn't have had the infrastructure we needed to support this kind of density."
