ENRICH SMART LEARNING WITH SECURE & SCALABLE WI-FI
With educational apps and videos making their way into classrooms, technology is now drastically changing the way students learn. Laptops and tablets are instrumental in facilitating student teacher interaction, and ensuring that students receive the most effective learning. With 4ipnet Wi-Fi, institutions can easily adapt to this new IT environment. Network administrators can perform detailed management of teacher and student access by creating multiple user roles, each with its own pre-defined set of policies and schedules. Furthermore, configurable wireless connectivity thresholds and AP load balancing help to mitigate the congestion caused by heavy concurrent access in areas such as lecture halls, providing students with an uninterrupted learning experience.
Schedule & Role-based User Access Control
Powerful Wi-Fi access control is necessary for schools to protect critical network resources, have complete visibility over all users and devices, and quickly respond to any potential network issues. 4ipnet’s role-based user policies provide school IT administrators with the tools to differentiate network access privileges between faculty members, students, and guests. Furthermore, each role can be assigned with unique access policies depending on schedule, and granted access to the network depending on the location of the Wi-Fi AP they are associated to.Learn More
Optimizing Wi-Fi Performance for High Density
Classrooms and lecture halls today are typically the locations in a school or university with the highest density of Wi-Fi devices. In order to facilitate an effective e-learning experience, 4ipnet’s access points and WHG gateways support robust performance during periods of higher concurrent association, DHCP requests, and authentication traffic. Furthermore, IT administrators can configure detailed connectivity thresholds on the access points to intelligently manage available wireless spectrum resources to guarantee smooth network performance.Learn More
Traffic Prioritization for Reliable E-Learning
To ensure that teaching applications across Wi-Fi are not interrupted by regular student access, network administrators can use 4ipnet’s role-based traffic classification and QoS features to assign different priorities for each user role. For example, teachers can be given a higher priority over students, ensuring the smooth wireless transmission of teaching materials. This helps avoid potential network congestion or downtime, and ultimately increases the effectiveness of technology in the classroom.Learn More
