1:1 Initiatives for K-12 Schools
Many K-12 school districts across Iowa were early adopters of 1:1 projects. As you reach refresh cycle points with your devices, you may also need to evaluate your wireless and wired infrastructure, as well as your bandwidth and firewall capacity. Whether you choose laptops, Chromebooks or iPads, our 1:1 support system can help your district develop and carry-out a smooth and professional 1:1 rollout.
ITS begins with a detailed Network Assessment. Network Assessments take a close look at switches, firewalls and other devices to help schools prepare for a larger number of users and an increased tug on their broadband connections. Many of these devices can be E-rated; ITS can assist you in selecting devices and licenses that generally qualify for E-rate funding.
ITS can also design and install a cloud-managed wireless network that makes 1:1 management a breeze. Learn more about our Meraki Wireless Solutions.
