MAINE, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The initiative is designed to upgrade and refresh the school district’s middle school and high school locations current technology infrastructure ensuring that they have the underlying technology foundation that will allow them to provide for a secure and flexible digital learning environment.
With the proliferation and acceleration of advanced digital learning technologies and the need to safely connect students, teachers, and life-long learners to the vital tools needed to support both in-school and remote learning it is imperative to have a network environment that provides stability and ample bandwidth to support secure innovative learning initiatives. The improved infrastructure is designed to bring a next-level experience for users, including expanded bandwidth, pervasive wireless and wired connectivity, built-in security features, and much more.
“With the enhanced and seamless connections created, students are able to access their learning resources from remote corners of the campus. Students need not concern themselves with connectivity issues and can have the full IT support they need and better focus on their learning and research needs.” said the IT Director of the school district. “With the improved infrastructure in place, innovative applications and services can be built within the environment, to provide an integrated and truly innovative learning experience.”
The number of network-supported devices grew more than twofold within the district over the past few years. School district leaders knew they needed to ready their technology environment for even higher demands in the future. Technology has become a necessity for today’s modern classroom, and the demand for increased bandwidth and a flexible and scalable network infrastructure will continue to increase.
The district took a proactive approach to ensure that technology would not inhibit their ability to provide the most optimal digital learning environment possible to their students and faculty. Including partnering with VoDaVi beyond the infrastructure upgrade to combine their elite Managed Services offerings, such as managed security of the wired and wireless network, ongoing maintenance, monitoring, reporting, and more.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s E-Rate program makes information services more affordable for schools and libraries. In recent years, the FCC refocused E-Rate from legacy telecommunications services to broadband, with a goal to significantly expand Wi-Fi access. These steps to modernize the program are helping E-Rate keep pace with the need for increased Internet access within these learning environments.
