Does Your Network Make the Grade? K-12 network infrastructure evolution must keep up with the EdTech revolution

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Personalized learning. Digital curriculum. Collaboration. Mobile devices. Data security. Technology is driving unprecedented change and re-inventing education and the learning experience. Educational technology initiatives are underway to evolve the delivery of education, ensure digital equity and improve student success, and protect student data— a solid K-12 broadband network foundation is critical to that success.

Will your network make the grade?

Mapping your K-12 broadband and network connectivity evolution to the quickly changing needs of education isn’t simple.

What you will learn in this session:

• How different education technology applications impact your network
• How much bandwidth will you need, and which infrastructure option is best
for you - leased lit services, dark fiber or self-provision?
• How your infrastructure choice impacts the balance between data security
and network performance?
• How the evolution towards Software Defined Networks and Virtualization
can enable bandwidth on demand, dynamic application allocation and in-
depth network analytics
• How can you fund your infrastructure option cost effectively? Will there be
any changes to the E-Rate program? Are there other funding programs

You have options, but which is right for your district’s needs now, and over the next decade. Get the answers to these questions and more from our education networking expert and hear how other districts are evolving their networks to support their EdTech initiatives.
