What the New E-rate Regulations Mean for Your Wi-Fi Network

The FCC recently revamped the E-rate program to make it possible for schools to significantly increase spending on Wi-Fi connections within their districts. The FCC also introduced a new product category eligible for purchase, Managed Wi-Fi.  What does this all mean for school districts, and why should they care about the option for purchasing a managed, or cloud, Wi-Fi solution?

Attend this web seminar to learn from an industry expert about key considerations for technology planning when it comes to the new E-rate regulations around Wi-Fi.  Many school districts are faced with limited IT staff, and a comprehensive managed Wi-Fi solution can help districts support their growing 1:1 computing programs and BYOD efforts. Hear also firsthand from a technology administrator on how managed Wi-Fi has eased the burden on their IT team and transformed the learning environment in their district.

Topics will include:

  • Background on the new E-rate regulations and the Managed Wi-Fi option

  • Deployment options for K-12 districts in terms of Managed Wi-Fi

  • How one school district moved to a managed Wi-Fi service to improve the learning environment

  • An overview of the ADTRAN ProCloud Wi-Fi managed service
