K-12 Schools Need an Infrastructure Plan for Mobility in Our BYOD World

Posted on Aug 10, 2018 in Jeff Nolte's Blog

With the adoption of mobile devices throughout society, it should come as no surprise that the mobility trend is surging into the world of K-12 education.

The shift toward BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has created new challenges for schools, particularly around network support for so many devices. Even districts that can afford to supply tablets or notebooks for students have to contend with the massive traffic demands of so many devices in use at the same time. A slow network or disrupted service reduces the benefits of students using these devices in class.

Another challenge is compatibility. To take advantage of a school’s digital assets – such as learning management systems, teacher pages and library resources – smartphones and tablets must easily connect to the school’s communications technology.

As K-12 administrators evaluate ways to support mobility in their schools, their logical starting point will be communications infrastructure.
