"ExtremeCloud IQ is a major tool we can use to see the devices on the wireless and understand what they're trying to access. We're seeing where all the bandwidth is going and understand what the students are trying to access, what we need to block, and what devices are trying to get on the network - especially outside devices that we don't want on our network."
