UC Wireless Solutions for Education Institutions

  • Education environments require many simultaneous high performance connections to the wireless LAN. This is called high-density Wi-Fi and Ruckus (ZoneFlex) is perfectly suited to these applications. One of its many patented features which actually follows each wireless device to maximise its signal strength (which translates to speed) is Ruckus BeamFlex for these and many other key patented benefits of Ruckus. Ruckus should be your chosen Wi-Fi platform for Education. For this reason UC Wireless has been chosen by many Educational Institutions to deliver their Wi-Fi.

  • In schools, colleges and universities staff are always mobile. Spectralink Wi-Fi 84-series mobile telephones allow educators to be contactable on a personal extension of the PABX wherever they are. The Spectralink 8440 telephone, distributed by UC Wireless throughout Africa, is typically the Wi-Fi phone that will be used over the Ruckus network on site. The Spectralink 8400 series phones all support PTT groups (push-to-talk two-way radio type communication and paging) over Wi-Fi which allows all users to communicate in a group.

  • On-site messaging and event monitoring is made possible by Spok® Fusion Middleware (Integration to Education systems / Portal). Through integration to back-office systems, key alerts about transactions or events or simply urgent messaging to all staff members on site is quick and efficient.

Top Class Wi-Fi

Schools, colleges and universities are all challenged to move up to higher-speed, more reliable Wi-Fi. They want strong security, killer coverage, and connections that don't drop. They also need Wi-Fi to go to places where no Ethernet cabling has gone before, such as common areas, temporary classrooms, on-campus housing, and every corner of the school grounds and campus. But for most educational institutions, tighter budgets and busy IT staff make the transition impossible.

Fortunately, Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi provides the technology that gives education institutions a cost-effective wireless infrastructure that's in a class by itself. Ruckus BeamFlex technology uses a high gain adaptive antenna array that monitors the environment and automatically finds the best signal path to each client. It provides robust, complete coverage and summa-cum-laude performance—at an affordable price.

Better Wi-Fi in Education

Staff and Student Safety and Communication

Education today faces major changes as primary, secondary, and tertiary educators address global opportunities, challenges, and needs. Your education institution must develop students as global citizens. It must also meet organisational imperatives to operate more efficiently and deliver programs that attract talented students and faculty from throughout the world.

New mandates such as digital textbooks and 1:1 initiatives require entire classes to concurrently get online to view material, collaborate on projects and present their work. Schools need strong security, full coverage, and consistent connections even when entire classes start sending videos at the same time.

With secure, easy-to-use automation applications link campus/school telephone systems, school scheduling applications, and notification systems in a common platform, driven by a single, dynamically updated database.
