WLAN projects in Austrian schools

A dozen installations with over 1000 users

In Vienna and around the Austrian capital alone Datwyler’s WLAN solutions are already installed in a dozen or so public and private schools, most of them with well over 1000 users. Some employ mobile Wi-Fi arrays for their tablet classes and for Internet access. Others use WLAN to provide pupils with access to e-textbooks, learning platforms and video libraries. Examples of other applications are the replacement of textbooks by e-book readers, the control of building technology and the integration of whiteboards and info-screens into the wireless network.

Last year the Federal Commercial College Wiener Neustadt installed a high-performance WLAN solution from Datwyler as part of a general refurbishment and extension project. Today the school benefits from a comprehensive high-performance wireless network infrastructure which facilitates modern teaching methods using tablets, smart phones and notebooks, and provides good availability and high signal quality even when a lot of users are logged on simultaneously.
