Each school in Texas’ North East Independent School District provides laptops and iTouches for students to use. And in the future, the students may be able to bring in their own devices. But because of all the mobile devices, the infrastructure takes a beating. One access point serves three classrooms. If each room has more than 15 or 20 devices, connectivity goes down or disappears altogether. Dead zones and slow access to the Internet also cause problems. “With our current solution, we just couldn’t support the density of 30 devices per classroom,” said Brandon Platt, assistant director of Management Information Services for the San Antonio district.
