The sprawling Rowan-Salisbury School System is comprised of 35 schools, with over 20,000 students and about 3,000 employees.
Rowan-Salisbury school district is implementing Aerohive's new, patent-pending Bonjour Gateway to make networks service-aware and make BYOD with Apple devices a native part of every network. Aerohive's Bonjour Gateway feature manages and controls Apple service availability (such as AirPrint, AirPlay, file sharing, collaboration applications, etc.) across an entire enterprise-class network.
Since deployingAerohive's wireless LAN solution as a pilot program in one school in 2010, Rowan-Salisbury school district has now expanded this implementation to include all 35 campuses.
"Before implementing Aerohive's solution, we were forced to provide select rooms with a laptop cart with an access point," said Phil Hardin, Executive Director for Technology for the Rowan-Salisbury School System. "Classrooms without these carts were unable to have wireless access. We quickly realized we needed to change this dated process in order to enable our students and staff to expand learning opportunities beyond the classroom."
The IT team at Rowan-Salisbury school district evaluated three other wireless solutions from Cisco, Meraki and Meru, before selecting Aerohive.
