Give Your Students Smarter School WiFi in NYC

As educational institutions are challenged to keep up with technological progress and provide greater access and connectivity to students, their needs also continue to evolve.


New York schools, school districts, colleges, and universities require vast coverage, impermeable security, and reliable connections for students and staff. New York City educational institutions also have unique requirements; they need their WiFi to reach throughout common areas, classrooms, housing facilities, and outdoor campus areas. The only problem is, tight budgets and overwhelmed IT staff make it difficult for New York City schools to maintain the connectivity students need.

Luckily, Ruckus Smart WiFi can provide New York City schools a cost-effective, robust wireless network infrastructure that will have no problem keeping up with your students. NYC educational institutions can benefit from:
