Texas School District Embraces Extreme Networks Infrastructure to Enable 21st-Century Learning Models

Published 28 Mar 2018

When the Pearland Independent School District (ISD) administration wanted to update their district-wide PC operating system to Microsoft Windows 7, they faced the prospect of upgrading 12,000 desktop computers for 20,000 students and 2,500 staff across 28 locations. It was determined that the VDI approach would consume the least in terms of precious IT resources and deliver the most in terms of return on investment. Pearland Independent School District chose Extreme Networks to upgrade their core and edge switching infrastructure, as well as deploying a foolproof method for robust BYOD support.

Technology Needs
  • Updating 12,000 desktop computers
  • Network with IP multicast capabilities

 Benefits of the new network solution include:

  • Dramatic improvements in network performance, speed-of-deployment, and management functionality
  • IPTV & streaming applications delivered via IP multicast capabilities
  • Device authentication, consistent policy application, and comprehensive reporting for wired and wireless systems
