Creating a Robust and Safe BYOD Program for School Districts

August 5, 2016

A plan to upgrade a district’s infrastructure for increased capacity and security.

With today’s technology budgets languishing and portable devices becoming more powerful, affordable, and omnipresent in students’ lives, district technology leaders are now eyeing a welcome educational harvest through Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs.

Those who have launched substantial BYOD initiatives, and those who study them, are quick to point out that while these programs may become educational game-changers, they are also changing the rules when it comes to network capacity and security.

Running a BYOD program does not carry major costs, unless it is necessary to expand the bandwidth or Wi-Fi reach of the existing network. School IT administrators would have purchased the same equipment to meet their networking needs, they say, even without a BYOD program minus the necessary access points and controllers to set one up.
