Educational institutions from K-12 to higher education
are always challenged to meet new requirements with ever dwindling funding. Teachers,
coaches, bus drivers and security personnel require the ability to oversee student
activities, sporting events and student assemblies. Other personnel such as maintenance staff want
better tools to manage day to day activities. Parents demand a safe and secure
learning environment, and administrators need to ensure a rapid, coordinated
response in case of an emergency situation. A common thread in meeting these
challenges is the need for effective communication.
Our digital line of Motorola’s MOTOTRBO two-way radios
are well suited to meet these needs, they offer increased talk group capacity,
integrated data applications such as dispatch and location tracking,
exceptional digital voice quality and enhanced battery life. Motorola two-way
radios can help keep students safer, staff more efficient, and costs lower.
Deploying WLAN in the classroom has become standard in schools, but there are many challenges in this environment:
School IT departments are required to support
large numbers of users, with so many people to support and limited staff the
WLAN solution can be time-intensive to configure and maintain.
Given the large footprint of coverage area in
a school, wireless coverage issues are often a challenge. Supporting so many
users requires special access points to meet coverage and throughput
Security is always a concern, the requirement
to separate faculty and student networks, Authentication requirements and data
encryption are always a challenge for any IT department.
School budget processes require that the cost
of deploying WALN is kept low for initial deployment and future maintainability,
in many cases by leveraging existing infrastructure.
Our Wireless LAN suite includes a complete line of indoor
and outdoor wireless connectivity solutions, allowing full campus coverage and
high speed access to your network. We ensure productivity by allowing you to be
untethered, our Voice over IP (VOIP) solutions can easily integrate with your
current PBX and WLAN infrastructure to provide access to your desk phone.
MCIS can provide a carrier-grade cost effective solution and can integrate network and user management features needed to maintain a secure and high-performance wireless environment. One of the most difficult tasks in any WLAN solution is to ensure performance and uptime, even with massive amounts of clients and heavy multimedia content. We employ load balancing features, airtime fairness, truly automatic channel selection for maximum throughput and interference mitigation, hardware redundancies, QOS prioritization, content-based traffic shaping and optimization, and incredible RF performance including beam forming, sectored arrays, and more.
