Students are becoming more reliant on online and mobile content, devices, teaching methods, applications, services and other resources. As rich online media, methods and tools begin to dominate the classroom, it’s more important than ever for district networks to be fast, secure, resilient and robust. Forward-looking schools and districts are evaluating and upgrading their wide area networks (WANs) and metropolitan area networks (MANs) to ensure that they operate under high usage, adapt to flexible configurations, and withstand interruptions and bandwidth surges. This white paper by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) reviews the pros and cons of different options and showcases best practices to help district leaders plan and execute their own network upgrades.
