NZ schools to deploy Wi-Fi 6

Two and a half thousand New Zealand schools will soon enjoy higher data rates and increased capacity thanks to deployment of 38,000 Wi-Fi 6 access points and 12,000 Multi-gig switches.

CommScope RUCKUS technology has been selected by the New Zealand Ministry of Education, allowing schools to manage entire networks on a single platform and facilitating advanced digital learning through video-centric teaching and the use of VR technology. 

Access to reliable and superfast connectivity will allow schools to prepare for the future, providing students with a valuable head start for the development of digital skills.

The system comprises RUCKUS SmartZone Controllers to manage switching and Wi-Fi networks, supported by the RUCKUS Smart Cell Insight platform for reporting and network analytics.

The system was supplied by CommScope through local distributor Exeed Limited to government-owned Network for Learning, which aims to provide every student with equal access to a safe digital environment in which to learn.
