K-12 Districts Embrace Wireless LANs, Choose Aruba Networks For Their Deployments

Stocks in this article: ARUN

Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN), today announced several new K-12 deployments that illustrate both the increasing, innovative use of wireless technology in school districts, as well as Aruba’s growing presence in this market.

Waverly Shell Rock School District in Waverly, Iowa, Eanes Independent School District in Austin, Texas and Northwest Independent School District in Fort Worth, Texas, represent just a few of the 1,000+ K-12 districts that deployed Aruba wireless LANs in 2012 as the foundation for new technology initiatives and to accommodate the growing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend. With their solid wireless networks in place, these districts are quickly and cost-effectively addressing the explosion of mobile devices being used on their campuses while providing reliable, secure access to educational applications and resources.

Northwest Independent School District, serving more than 17,000 students in Fort Worth, Texas, exemplifies the trend towards K-12s taking the lead in supporting mobile devices, both district-issued and personal, that enhance the learning experience for students in the classroom and allow teachers and staff to achieve more flexibility and efficiency in their daily activities. Northwest ISD deployed an Aruba wireless LAN across its 25 campuses and in its district office to connect more than 10,000 district-issued mobile devices including Dell laptops and Apple iPads, as well as 3,000 student- and staff-owned devices ranging from smartphones to Kindles to personal laptops.

“Our ultimate goal is to help kids learn and we are proving repeatedly that students and teachers are using technology to improve learning,” said Carl Shawn, director of technology for Northwest Independent School District. “A key part of building this learning environment is allowing a wide range of mobile devices to connect to our network and access applications ranging from digital textbooks to academic assessment resources. Aruba made it easy for us to do this and ensure a good experience for our users, no matter what devices they are using.”
