Charter School Deploys Cost-Effective Foundation for Learning
Source: Cisco Systems
Horizon is a fully WASC accredited tuition-free public school that is chartered under California's Western Placer Unified School District. Until recently, the school maintained an old network and servers that had reached the end of their lives. Administrative employees were using peer-to-peer LANs that delivered poor application performance and incorporated no security measures. The school wanted to reduce communication costs, replace aging infrastructure and improve application performance and also implement security measures. Horizon School chose Unified Communications, Secure Wireless network, and switching and routing solutions from Cisco. The school was also able to take advantage of Cisco Capital leasing programs to help deploy its new infrastructure affordably.
