WiFi Fundamentals

All attendees at this event will receive a free 802.11ac WAP valued at $895 for their school.
Numbers are strictly limited.

Managing your school’s wireless environment can be one of the most challenging responsibilities an IT team has. Growing device numbers and ever-greater bandwidth demands means your solution needs to be working at maximum effectiveness.

To help get your school on the right path, our Network Engineer, Nathan Gibb, is putting on a free beer and pizza night to dig into the things you need to know when planning for wifi - whether it’s your current equipment, upgrades or new rollouts.

The event itself will begin with a presentation on the key elements of enterprise-grade wireless environments, explore the EduSTAR Wifi approach and its impacts, and compare it to cloud-managed alternatives designed to help boost both your productivity and your network capabilities.

Key Topics:

  • Understanding 2.4GHz and 5GHz
  • Rethinking WiFi Design
  • How environmental factors impact WiFi
  • WiFi Signal Behaviours
  • Importance of Layer 2 & 3 Infrastructure
  • WiFi Site Surveying
  • Deep dive the DET EduSTAR WiFi Solution
  • Cloud Managed Solutions & Demonstration

We'll also send you a short survey before the session to help make sure we're covering everything you need.

(Please note: while this event covers the EduSTAR solution and is primarily aimed at DET schools, there are still huge benefits in attending for staff from any school system.)
