Schools are becoming more connected than ever before. Changing the way we learn has been a whole new facet for every education facility across the world.
In Episode 11 of the Switched On Thinking Podcast, host Neil C. Hughes is joined by Alexandra Méhat, NETGEAR’s SMB product marketing director, and Bryan Turner, the director of IT at Trinity-Pawling School, in Pawling, New York, to learn more about the experiences they’ve faced this year, and how they’ve worked together to provide students with the networks that they expect as standard now.
In this episode, Alex discusses how NETGEAR works with schools all over the world. Schools with WiFi issues and old, thick walls. Some students are still attending school in person and “they need to be all connected at once… and not have glitches because of networking.”
Classes are smaller, there are pop up classes, and learning is happening in new areas of schools. “Your network has to help out with this too,” says Alex. At NETGEAR, “we have Instant mesh where you can directly put a WiFi access point without any cables in one of these classes, for example, and have your WiFi right away.”
