ADTRAN managed Wi-Fi solution enables high-speed connectivity and ease-of-management for a 20,000-device BYOD initiative

cloud-wi-fiADTRAN is partnering with Calhoun County Schools to deploy district-wide, high-speed Wi-Fi to support the district’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program.

This initiative is enabling teachers to incorporate new tools into their curriculum that will allow students in Calhoun County Schools to compete more effectively in today’s data-driven economy. As part of its Enabling Communities, Connecting Lives program, ADTRAN is helping more than 9,300 students, teachers and administrators in Calhoun County create an environment that stimulates a passion for learning and provides an opportunity to reach maximum potential.

The K-12 school district in Northeast Alabama leveraged ADTRAN ProCloudSM managed service to connect 16 schools, a technical career center, athletic fields and four administrative offices onto a single high-performance wireless network. Calhoun County Schools are significantly simplifying IT operations by offloading the management of the Wi-Fi network to create a strong foundation for its BYOD program and facilitate the use of iPads and Apple TVs in every classroom.
