Education is one of the most innovative users of Internet-related technology. After all, the Internet was born from a project to link disparate computer systems at colleges throughout the US. It is now considered essential to have Internet access in the vast majority of classrooms for reference, current events, and learning experiences that are possible only with the Internet, such as “paired classrooms” in two different countries and cultures.
Broadband Wireless technology can play a key role in almost any educational institution or organization. Some examples:
* Cost-effectively provide Internet connectivity between buildings on a campus or area at speeds comparable to fiber – 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps… and even faster. Significant savings can be realized by not using leased lines from the telephone company, and even more savings can be realized with the use of Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) instead of conventional telephone service.
* Provide “canopy” Wi-Fi coverage to a college campus to provide voice and video services as well as conventional Internet access.
* Extend Internet connectivity to off-campus buildings, temporary structures or events, or mobility – tracking buses, webcams on security vehicles, and mobile research projects.
