Summary
The school management wants to build a new network infrastructure as they were not satisfied with the existing one. There were issues like network disruption, low latency, and frequent wireless disconnection. Besides handling those issues and providing a better learning experience to their students, the investment should be able to provide longevity and scalability while not exceeding the budget limitations when it comes to upgrading the wired and wireless networks. Management decided to go with Zyxel’s solution which met all the requirements.
Zyxel deployed the top-notch wireless access points, network switches, and ATP firewall on the school premises to help the school overcome the issues. Compared to the existing solution that they were using, Zyxel provided a cost-effective, long-lasting, value-for-money solution. Zyxel’s NWA1123ACv3 APs offer a smooth wireless transition to their existing wireless Infrastructure. Zyxel’s Nebula Control Center provides the school’s IT department with central, single-point monitoring and management of all Zyxel’s access points. GS1920-8HPv2 Smart Managed PoE Switches were used for wired connections and to power up the access points. Lastly, ATP500 Firewall reduces the stress for network administrators as it helps block unknown attacks and unauthorized applications.
