According to the FCC, 60% of schools in America lack sufficient Wi-Fi capability to provide students with 21st Century educational tools. Now with the E-Rate expansion funding - Wi-Fi in schools is a reality. Without WiFi access, activities inherent to a digital education are limited.

In this paper we have identified nine myths about K-12 Wi-Fi deployments, and if these myths are avoided, there is a much better chance that campus Wi-Fi is going to work as promised.

Example of a few common myths:

  • Myth #1 One AP per classroom provides optimal performance
  • Myth #2 You need to upgrade your switches if you’re going to upgrade your Wi-Fi
  • Myth #3  APs need to be mounted inside classrooms

Read our 9 Myths About Wi-Fi in K-12 Education to ensure you get the most out of your Wi-Fi deployment. And make sure to ask your network provider tough questions to ensure you have the best Wi-Fi to help teachers deliver quality education.
