Executive Summary

Bremond ISD's older wireless LAN was difficult to expand and manage. The system didn't support Power over Ethernet (PoE) because the technology was not standardized at the time they purchased it. They had to wait months before they could deploy the wireless Access Points [APs], because the power wasn't in place. They found out that D Link offers a managed wireless PoE solution. Bremond bought three DES-1228P Web Smart 24-Port PoE switches and 20 DWL-3140 Web Smart 802.11g PoE Thin Access Points. Bremond's client connections with the D-Link equipment support Super G, which gives them a 50MB duplex connection (Super G is Atheros Communications' proprietary frame-bursting, compression and channel bonding technology that improves IEEE 802.11g wireless LAN performance).
