The school was deploying a 1:1 program using iPad mini’s. The current IT infrastructure including the network switches and wireless was inadequate and outdated.
Cisco Network Switching
Akins IT worked with the IT Director and IT staff to come up with a complete network overhaul during the summer. A wireless site survey was performed as well as a network evaluation and recommendation plan. This included replacing all switches with Cisco switches and installing 46 indoor Aerohive wireless access points and 6 outdoor Aerohive wireless access points with an Aerohive HiveManager Virtual Appliance since the school wanted to keep all management on-premise and not in the cloud.
