Lake Washington School District

Challenge:

Lake Washington School District (LWSD) needed to increase the throughput of its wireless network to accommodate the significant increase of wireless devices used in and out of its classrooms.


Solutions

The school district installed a Cisco 802.11n wireless network to support its one-to-one computer-to-student accessibility initiative.


Results

  • A Cisco Unified Wireless Network delivered broad access to students and faculty, enhancing student learning and teacher access to needed resources
  • Cisco Access Points increased throughput and provided a more reliable end-user experience
  • Cisco Wireless Control System offered IT staff greater control and monitoring of the district's wireless network

Our Cisco network allows teachers to use technology in their teaching strategies. It also gives students access to resources they need to be ready for the future.
