With achievement levels among the best in Michigan and the nation, the district strives to provide the best resources available to prepare students for the future, and technology is no exception. As technology continues to play a pivotal role in the learning process for the students of the Troy School District, there is an increasing demand for wireless access that requires the support of its more than 12,000 students across twenty schools. The district selected Extreme Networks' IdentiFi™ Wireless to address the challenges of scalability and intensified traffic growth. Troy School District can now better equip students for success, supporting trends such as BYOD and online learning with optimized performance, visibility and control.

  • Extreme implemented both wired and wireless 802.11ac, enabling school-wide Wi-Fi with secured access for students, faculty and administration.
  • The entire network will be managed through Extreme Networks' NetSight® management suite, including Mobile IAM for BYOD visibility and control over users and devices.

Executive Perspectives

Mark Washington, Director of Technology, Troy School District

"As a leader in instructional technologies, it was imperative that we have a system in place to support the four high schools, four middle schools and twelve elementary schools throughout our district. Extreme stood out as a solution that would enable us to face the challenges of growth and scalability head on, and provide our staff and students with an outstanding and smart Wi-Fi solution.
