Supporting Wireless For Over 20,000 Students and Staff at Waukegan Public Schools

September 12, 2016 - 1 Comment

What do you get when you have 17,000 students and 2,000 staff accessing the network across 28 buildings?

A. Reliable, high-density wireless
B. Visibility across the entire network
C. Cloud based management and control
D. Stress-free 2-person IT team
E. All of the above

With Cisco Meraki, the answer is E, all of the above. Our cloud managed access points make managing the wireless network simple and seamless for Oyin Idowu, Network Administrator at Waukegan Public Schools in Illinois. From preconfiguring devices in the Meraki dashboard before they’re unboxed to creating special event SSIDs in seconds, just 2 people are able to do it all.

Don’t believe it’s that easy? Listen to Oyin share her experience deploying over 1,200 high-density 802.11ac Meraki access points live on a webinar. On Tuesday, September 20 at 11 am PT, she’ll join a Meraki Product Specialist to chat, demo the Waukegan PS dashboard, and answer your questions.
