Aruba Wireless Review

Allows a student or teacher to be able to roam freely from classroom to classroom without dropping a signal


What is our primary use case?

Provide WiFi access for an elementary school pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. Serving about 350 students with mobility Internet connection. The building infrastructure is a solid, old school, preventing your regular AP from being able to penetrate through walls.

How has it helped my organization?

Teachers and students have access to technology within the classroom which is used daily side-by-side complementing their education.

What is most valuable?

Most valuable feature of the solution is the ability for a student or teacher to be able to roam freely from classroom to classroom, no matter the floor, without dropping a signal.

What needs improvement?

The ability for newer devices to easily communicate with older style APs. I wish the APs had the ability to enter in notes about a specific AP. For example, AP Mac address goes to classroom 123.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
