17 Nov Connected Learning: Onboard Any User with KBR’s WiFi Solution
Mobile devices are the pencil, paper, and textbooks for students today. When hundreds of students with tablets, netbooks, and laptops hit your school’s WiFi network at the same time, online learning can come to a standstill. Is your school ready to on-board hundreds of mobile devices at the same time? Will students have to wait, idle and disengaged, while your IT staff troubleshoots connectivity problems? What happens if poor WiFi prevents some students from taking exams online?
With a WiFi network from KBR WiFi, your network isn’t the problem, it’s the solution. Whether you favour 1:1 computing or BYOD, KBR Wi-Fi solutions ensure fair and reliable access to educational materials, applications and online resources. You can on-board any user on any device quickly, easily and securely, even when students bring their own devices and the whole school connects at once. You can deliver smooth, continuous connectivity to students and teachers whether they’re sitting in class, walking to the library or packing an auditorium for the school play.
Digital learning works when the WiFi works. Give your students access to uninterrupted learning with KBR WiFi solutions.

Au Revoir to ‘Bonjour’:
Overcome the challenges of Bonjour on schools networks
In school, people want to use their iPads and MacBooks to print email, photos, web pages and e-books. Apple AirPrint makes that easy, and Apple AirPlay makes it easy from Apple iOS devices to widescreen TVs. The challenge is that Apple Bonjour, the underlying protocol used by AirPlay and AirPrint, was designed to work in home WiFi networks.
Our WiFi solutions include Bonjour support, giving mobile users the experience they expect with AirPlay, AirPrint, and other services that rely on Bonjour while IT has the control it needs. No changes need to be made to WiFi client devices.
Improve your roaming:
Unlike traditional WiFi networks, where devices see dozens of access points operating on different channels, our WiFi solution gives each user device a single virtualised point of access that enables your network to manage connections over the best available access point. Clients can roam between access points without experiencing the ‘sticky client’ problem. No matter how many physical access points your network has.
