The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives in many ways, shuttering physical workplaces and forcing educational institutions to pivot to remote learning. As part of their mandate of community support, the Kaiserman Jewish Community Center of Wynnewood, PA, decided to temporarily convert their dance studios, art rooms, and gyms into remote classrooms so working parents would have a safe place to leave their children during the day.
Unfortunately, Kaiserman JCC’s original Wi-Fi solution hadn’t been designed to handle high-bandwidth activities and offered only spotty connectivity and poor coverage. As such, significant improvements were required so it could meet students’ remote learning needs.
To ensure their network would be ready in time for the new school year, the Kaiserman JCC board turned to WiFi Integrators for Innovation for assistance. The community center needed a fast and reliable network and could be designed, deployed, and tested before they began to welcome students. They also needed a more effective way to manage their access points (APs), address their poorly installed and overloaded switches, and access ongoing support and troubleshooting assistance.
Kaiserman JCC’s New Network Now Supports 50 to 60 Video Calls with Ease
Wi-Fi Integrators for Innovation designed the community center’s network using Cambium Networks products, including adding a small Cambium Networks router and additional indoor APs. Cambium Networks has long been known for their high-quality products and customer-focused approach to business, values that WiFi Integrators for Innovation shares. Cambium Networks was also selected because they would not require cloud management or licensing fees, allowing the Kaiserman JCC to enjoy fast, reliable, and affordable connectivity.
The new network was installed and fully operational in just over a day. After installing, testing, and configuring the networking equipment, WiFi Integrators for Innovation set up separate Wi-Fi networks for staff, students, and guests to help ensure both high-quality connectivity and improved security.
The new network can comfortably support many remote students simultaneously, ensuring community center students have the tools they need to succeed and a safe, supervised learning environment while providing parents with peace of mind.
