You’re doing a great job on your networks, keeping up with all those new devices- installs are rolling out, devices are getting into students’ hands, educators are getting trained, and your network is healthy and robust.
Despite all that effort and work and hustle, that aging technology equipment will eventually fail. Those additional devices are certainly helping to advance learning outcomes, but they’re also straining networks that have aged out of their utility period. They just weren’t designed to support this many devices, and in addition, many devices that were not formerly on the network are now.
Plus, you may just not like the equipment you have, or you may not be familiar with it, or it may be time to integrate a better solution. Perhaps the services you subscribe to to help maintain your network and devices have become too expensive or redundant.
