Beaufort County School District: Small City, Big Learning

July 11, 2017
 
 

Beaufort County School District is 5.5 million square feet with 21 elementary schools, two pre-K-8 schools, one K-8 school, seven middle schools, and nine high schools. To ensure students perform at an internationally competitive level in a learning environment that is safe, nurturing, and engaging, the school district needed a new wired and wireless network to seamlessly support their 1:1 program for 22,000 wireless devices. After undergoing an exhaustive wireless network challenge, Beaufort selected a total solution from Extreme Networks that consists of edge, core, and data center switching, wireless, access control, management, and analytics. 

Benefits of the new network solution include:

  • Reduced costs because of the standardized network management, limited lifetime warranty, and reliable wireless solution
  • A future-proofed network with the ability to identify bandwidth utilization of the separate buildings
  • Increased bandwidth to support additional digital learning programs like virtual reality and online testing
