Technology is important to children in terms of how they learn and how they live. A challenge for many school districts is the ability to offer a mobile learning by putting digital resources in a student’s hands with constrained funding for education.

Katy Independent School District located in Katy TX needed a wireless infrastructure that would support this vision. With over 62,000 students, Katy ISD needed to move from a wireless network that was built for coverage to a network that is built for density. By providing 802.11ac-based Wi-Fi access points in classrooms and outdoor locations and centralized management, the school district is supporting more than 40,000 concurrent Wi-Fi users and empowering faculty, students and staff.

Through Cisco’s Unified Access Solution including Aironet Access Points; Catalyst Switching; Nexus Switching; ASA; Prime; Services, Katy ISD has:

  • Provided an excellent Wi-Fi experience for students, staff, and guests
  • Enabled successful BYOD and digital equity programs
  • Improved teacher and student satisfaction
