ADTRAN has unveiled ProCloud.EDU, a wireless digital learning suite targeting classrooms which are looking for cloud-managed Wi-Fi deployments.
ProCloud.EDU, which offers cloud-managed wired and Wi-Fi networks for BYOD and 1-to-1 initiatives in school districts, consortiums, and individual school campuses, ensures technology-empowered learning centers with increased functionality like capacity planning, cloud-managed Wi-Fi, content filtering and classroom management software.
“Anticipated E-rate funding for Wi-Fi, along with a burgeoning number of education applications is driving classroom wireless adoption. New solutions are needed to plan and deploy secure classroom Wi-Fi while also addressing policy controls and ongoing maintenance in a lower-touch way in order to support the best learning environment possible,” said Nolan Greene, research analyst for IDC’s Network Infrastructure Group.
The ProCloud.EDU wireless digital learning suite offers network security to restrict websites and stop incoming threats, classroom management software to facilitate learning through technology and gain back valuable classroom time and student and teacher help desk to address connectivity issues, said ADTRAN.
“The ADTRAN ProCloud.EDU solution brings together a hardware and software suite to provide a secure Wi-Fi network that facilitates a new vision for mobile learning. Educators will now have the modern technological tools needed to maximize both teacher and student achievement,” said Michelle Southerland, product manager, ProServices, ADTRAN.
