How to Prepare Your Network’s Architecture for the Mobile Device and Application Explosion

Mobile devices and applications have become more prominent in the classroom, as BYOD and 1-1 initiatives have enabled students to bring their smartphones, tablets, and laptops to school for educational use. This influx of wireless devices has made the performance, reliability, security, and cost of managing wireless networks ever more paramount. As a result, schools now require “enterprise-grade” wireless networks – those that are managed centrally, locally secured, and offer sophisticated features for scaling the network throughout their buildings, campuses, and districts. However, these features tend to be scarce or altogether absent in most of the consumer-grade wireless APs that many schools have installed in the past because of their low, sticker costs. In this session, you’ll learn how to prepare for the diversity and explosion of mobile devices and applications in education in terms of scalability, service survivability, integration, application control, and Simpli-Fi-cation with Aerohive’s distributed Wi-Fi and routing solutions.

Burlington Student Help Desk - Panel Discussion

This panel discussion will highlight our student run technology help desk that was proposed two years ago as a new course to help support the 1:1 iPad initiative. Attendees will learn the steps needed to build a student technology help desk course, how to build the curriculum to align with common core standards, and receive a first hand account of our course from our students. Attendees will leave this session with a comprehensive understanding of how to find in house resources to support a large scale 1:1 initiative, how to integrate a student technology help desk, and how to use students as a resource for professional development.

More apps. and more devices but no more bandwidth – now what?

This year you have more devices on the network, each wanting access to different network applications.  Everyone says their network application is “Priority #1”.  How can your infrastructure support all these new requests securely without swamping your Internet pipe or your day?  We’ll explore how Dell SonicWALL’s Next Generation Firewall solution can identify network applications and allow you to create policies to prioritize good network applications, block those you don’t want on your wired and wireless network, and bandwidth shape everything in between.  We’ll even discuss directory integration so the superintendent’s network applications really are “Priority #1”.
