The London District Catholic School System of Ontario, Canada has 47 elementary schools, nine secondary schools and two administrative buildings providing a full range of educational experiences to 18,000 students, and 22,000 network users. Challenged with a small IT staff, they needed to provide reliable wireless coverage to support their BYOD, mobility and online testing initiatives, as well as maintaining a centralized network management.
The Extreme Networks wireless network has enabled the London District Catholic School System to provide reliable seamless WiFi access to their 22,000 users across 58 locations while easing the management burden for their IT staff. With IdentiFi Wireless APs & Controllers and NetSight network management, the results for the district were:
- Pervasive wireless access
- Centralized management of wired and wireless network
- High-performance Wi-Fi supports BYOD and online testing initiatives
With plans to increase their bandwidth to meet growing network demands, the new Extreme Networks wireless network will allow the London District Catholic School System to continue to integrate technology into the classroom.
