NERIC’s Managed Wireless Networking service encompasses all aspects of a wireless network infrastructure utilizing state-of-the-art Cisco wireless controllers and the latest in high-speed, powerful, lightweight access points. Centrally managed intelligence is what drives the lightweight access points and provides a structured and sound wireless experience. NERIC's goal is to construct a high-performance wireless network that will provide a solid foundation in the delivery of current and future mobile technology.
A wireless infrastructure, once considered an unreliable resource for districts, has become an absolute necessity in today’s schools. Slow speeds and security issues were a major concern in previous generation wireless networks; however, improvements in security, speed and reliability have completely transformed current wireless platforms. Using Cisco’s latest generation wireless controllers, NERIC’s Managed Wireless Networking service will provide rock-solid wireless infrastructure that supports the needs of each participating school district.
The wireless network allows teachers the ability to easily rearrange their teaching space and equipment to create the most optimal learning environment for their individual classes and students. While computer labs still provide a valuable resource, students now need constant access to information throughout the day and a secure wireless network is essential. District staff can also utilize the wireless networking to reliably and securely access network resources. In addition, school district visitors and community event participants can be allowed wireless access to Internet resources while being prevented from accessing secure school resources.
