For those in the education sector, money is tight.
It is critical for educators to maximize both powerful technology and small budgets.
Education management software like ClassLink and Sycamore Education, or learning portals such as its learning, Schoology, and Cloud9Learning all require a solid network infrastructure to support them in the back-end. With students and teachers bringing their own mobile phones and tablets to the classroom, and an increasing number of schools adopting a one-to-one technology initiative, the strength and speed of a wireless network is more critical than ever before.
