Texas school district looks to Motorola for WLAN solutions

Motorola's wireless LAN technology is working to catch up to the growing demands of mobile data consumers, and the Keller Independent School District in Keller, Texas is one of the beneficiaries of this improvement.

Keller Independent School District, which currently connects video content and data to classrooms via Motorola's WING 802.11n wireless LAN, will soon be upgraded to WING 5, which updates its current WLAN architecture.

"Managing the wireless infrastructure across one of the largest school districts in Texas is no easy task, especially when you're running high-definition video and multimedia content to students in multiple classrooms," said KISD chief technology officer Joe Griffin in a prepared statement. "Motorola's 802.11n WLAN has been instrumental in enabling us to deliver reliable access to our students and teachers."

Developed for enterprise IT departments that need to provide a flexible infrastructure that includes wireless communication, the WING 5 solution has a simple installation, the company says, that does not require a VLAN re-architecting of an existing network to implement.
