SAYREVILLE, N.J., Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Turn-key Technologies, Inc. (TTI) is proud to partner with Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, to be among the first to bring WiFi 6 (802.11ax) into K-12 and university classrooms. Together, Aruba and TTI are empowering academic institutions of all shapes and sizes to leverage WiFi 6 technology toward the creation of exceptional classroom experiences.
WiFi 6 represents a major leap in wireless connectivity, delivering order-of-magnitude improvements in performance, efficiency, and security. Environments exposed to heavy traffic from mobile and IoT devices, such as classrooms and campuses, stand to secure appreciable advantages from the Wi-Fi Alliance's next major specification.
Schools and universities face a unique set of challenges in delivering reliable connectivity. While an influx of IoT devices has provided both teachers and students alike with powerful new capabilities, IT leaders often lack the resources and agility to adequately support them. For academic institutions in particular, the overhaul of a wireless network represents a substantial undertaking, and for a school district to be recognized as a WiFi 6 early adopter is a commendable achievement.
Octorara Area School District's partnership with TTI serves as a sterling example of how Aruba WiFi 6 access points (APs) can empower stakeholders in education to meet new digital demands. The four Pennsylvania schools in the Octorara Area district each deploy a 1:1 student-device initiative; each student uses a Chromebook or iPad, and teachers follow a "bring-your-own-device" policy. Such progressive IT initiatives required a significant investment on behalf of the school district.
To take the next step, Octorara endeavored to upgrade their wireless network using Aruba's Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™ access points — turning to TTI for the integration. Working closely with district leaders to deploy Aruba's technology throughout the network, TTI was able to achieve a seamless installation — on time, and on budget.
While tech-forward districts like Octorara may have the most to gain from WiFi 6, they're not the only programs pushing for the next generation of wireless. One elementary school, for example, is using WiFi 6 to boost connectivity in non-traditional learning spaces like playgrounds and outdoor class pods. Likewise, a number of colleges are upgrading to WiFi 6 in order to provide students with seamless mobile connectivity across the entire campus.
Aruba's WiFi 6 products put best-in-class connectivity into the hands of those who need it most: America's educators. With Octorara as just its latest success story, Turn-key Technologies, Inc. is proud to continue its legacy of helping America's schools and universities take the next step toward comprehensive digital transformation.
