Motorola WLAN enables Kenosha Unified School District to ensure better learning experience

Motorola Solutions has supplied WLAN technology to Kenosha Unified School District (KUSD) in Wisconsin to better learning experience for students, teachers and faculty.

Leveraging Motorola Solutions WLAN solutions, the district supports nearly 7,000 mobile tablets and 12,000 desktops and laptops on the network which serves more than 26,000 students and staff.

The district’s bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program will add an additional 10,000 devices to the system.

In addition to installing the wireless access points, the district wired all of the buildings and moved to a Gigabit switching system to support the new wireless infrastructure.

The Motorola high-speed wireless network has allowed for better equipment options and enhanced educational tools in addition to increased mobility and efficiency. Students and staff are empowered to use information more effectively and collaborate through online programs.

Motorola said the WiNG 5 operating system provides the advanced brainpower required to create network awareness for the WLAN, allowing every piece of infrastructure in a wireless network to work together to route every transmission as efficiently as possible.

Motorola’s centralized controllers provide hierarchical management enabling both security and site-survivability at the edge of the network and roaming between sites.

Motorola access points deployed in school buildings deliver lower cost of deployment, and speed required to support the most demanding applications, including voice and video.
