Zenulus Earns Top Grades for Wi-Fi Access at Washington International School
Vienna Firm Designs and Deploys Wireless Access Points at DC School
Vienna, VA. (March, 27 2017) — Zenulus, a leading IT managed service provider based in Vienna, Virginia, has made the learning process a bit more hassle-free at Washington International School.
The more than 100 faculty and over 900 students at the Washington, D.C. school struggled with outdated legacy controlled access points for their Wi-Fi. The system had insufficient capacity, resulting in frustratingly slow connections.
Zenulus implemented a Cisco Meraki web-based dashboard to check usage and assign additional access points to high-use areas. The dashboard gives the school administrators visibility on what is going on and can see the access points health, location, and density. The Cisco Meraki dashboard allows the IT staff at the school to see which devices are using too much bandwidth. It enables administrators to block devices or use a bandwidth meter to shape the internet traffic and limit the use of a particular application.
“Since we installed the system, help desk tickets regarding wireless connectivity reduced by 95%,” said Reza Zeinalian, President/CEO of Zenulus. “This allows the WIS staff to concentrate on other tasks and not worry about slowness and degradation of the Wi-Fi network.”
Students at Washington International School use the Internet for research, watch educational videos on YouTube, and perform dissections online. WIS classrooms, offices, and common areas are well connected with over 600 Mac and Windows computers in classrooms, computer labs, and administrative facilities.
“Faculty and students no longer have to plan their day regarding locations where the internet works best,” said Zeinalian. “The changes have resulted in a more efficient learning environment.”
