“The project has been a tremendous success. One of the most significant hurdles was establishing a reliable and robust wireless connection capable of handling the daily load of a thousand WiFi-connected devices. We had to carefully select products tailored to the school's specific needs. Thanks to Zyxel's solution, the school now enjoys high performance and seamless coverage throughout all five floors of the building, effectively avoiding overload situations.”
