Kenton County: Enabling the BYOD Campus
School District on outskirts of Cincinnati, Ohio
23 school facilities, 1,500 teachers & staff, 14, 700
students
Problem
 Gap between the computing
needs of students and staff
and the number of district
owned laptops (1 laptop per
4 students/staff)
 Aging network infrastructure
 Limited IT budget
Solution
 WLAN 8100: Scalable
wireless network that could
meet their BYOD needs today
and in the future
 Ethernet Routing Switch 8800
Value
 Enhanced learning -
improved access to
information
 Doubled number of
computing resources
available to students >4,700 personally owned
devices on the wireless
network
“In the past, primary and secondary education was all about memorization. The Internet and BYOD are changing that,
driving critical thinking and student creativity, fueled by wider access to information. Since our wireless network was
built, new equipment has been pouring into the district every day. The influx of technology has been contagious.”

Eries 1 Boces: Driving One-to-One Computing
School Districts in and around Buffalo, NY
20 school facilities, 1,500 teachers & staff, 74, 441 students
Solution
Problem
 Widening gaps in the number
of computers districts can
afford to provide to staff,
teachers & students
 Dwindling budgets
 Modern, Mobile & Connected
campus
 Wireless LAN 8100
 Ethernet Edge & Core
Switching
 Aging network infrastructure
unable to accommodate
BYOD explosion
Value
 Improved access to
educational and technical
resources
 Better collaboration between
faculty & students
 Advanced communications
infrastructure that is simpler
to operate & maintain
“The ultimate question we ask ourselves each day is: How can we provide the educational and technical resources that
our kids need? Paradoxically, soft economic conditions will help the BYOD movement take hold sooner rather than later.
Due to the budget realities, these types of programs are vital to fill the computing needs gap. In a year or two, programs
like ours inevitably will be the norm, not an outlier.”
