South Island School in Hong Kong is made up of students from around the world, with 1,400 students from over 35 countries. One value that sets the school apart is its commitment to using technology in the classroom. For instance, every student has a laptop that they use to access e-books, watch educational videos, and complete homework assignments. Some exams are even taken digitally.
With wireless devices used daily by every student and faculty member, a stable network connection is almost as important as pencil and paper in classrooms. South Island School’s existing Cisco network had reached end of life, and the school needed to refresh the infrastructure with a network that could meet bandwidth needs for years to come.
“We looked at other vendors, but we were extremely impressed with how the existing Cisco equipment performed over the years,” says Victor Alamo, ICT manager at South Island Schools. “By upgrading to the latest Cisco access points and switches, we’d have an infrastructure that would keep up with our needs.”
We were looking for infrastructure that would last us a long time. By fitting Cisco’s access points with 802.11ac radio modules, we’re supporting the latest wireless standard for top performance.
If we need greater bandwidth in the future, Cisco’s modular Access Point design enables us to upgrade without investing in completely new access points.
Cisco Prime Infrastructure pulls together management of wired and wireless networks in a single, unified solution. This gives our ICT team greater control so we can adjust bandwidth as needed, such as assigning specific rooms higher priority during exams.
The visibility into the networks gives us more information than ever. We can identify classes that have greater bandwidth needs, monitor connections for hotspots, and even track down misplaced laptops.
Through services like FileWave and Casper, South Island School is using the increased bandwidth and stable connections to provide remote technical support.
“Better network performance means that we can expand our services to the school,” says Alamo.
So I'm trying to think of a way to do this and have been messing around in gns3 a bit but I figured I'd post here for ideas while I putz around. 2 internet routers that connect to 2 different ISP's. They share the BGP tables. ...
Hello Community, I'm working on the setup of a Cisco CSR. I have a route 10.0.0.0/24 learned by a BGP session on tunnel 200 and 201 (MPLS and failover), I also have a static route 10.0.0.0/29 (smaller than the previous one) to a tunnel 202.&nbs...
Hello Dear Community, i have crated a small test topology where i have a main DHCP Server connected to a Switch(WS-C2960-24TT), on the same Switch there are 4 devices connected and are set to ask DHCP for IP address.what i am trying to reach:1- i wou...
Normally I would give the a device that always needs to be on a static IP address through its web interface or command line. However I ran into a different device. Its a security panel that's always on and there is no way to log into it, no web inter...
Hello Everyone,I'm setting up a lab with intervlan routing. With 2 hosts, Cisco SG220 switch and a Cisco 1941 router. I added the topology. On the switch Gi1 is an access port in VLAN 10 and Gi2 is an access port in VLAN20. WS1 is connected to G...
