Whether you are a primary, secondary or higher education facility, technological advancements and security issues are two of the main concerns surrounding the education world today. Classroom learning has experienced significant evolvement in the last ten years and will continue to do so in the years to come, thereby increasing the demand for technology upgrades to enhance learning and security on your campus.
All of today's college campuses feature Wi-Fi networks throughout their indoor and outdoor facilities. Wireless is now a mission-critical tool for instructional content, classroom programming, and overall lifestyle.
Campuses with many buildings of various ages and construction, and a mix of venues from large stadiums to individual residence halls, create unique challenges for wireless network designers. Typically, 100% wireless coverage and uptime is expected. Many buildings on campus are essentially open to the public, so physically protecting WAPs is important.
Mounting Equipment in High-Tech Classrooms
Classrooms and conference rooms everywhere are being equipped with high definition multimedia projectors and multimedia gateways. This technology enables students and participants to wirelessly share content with everyone in the room through the multimedia gateway.
Based on Oberon’s industry-leading wireless access point enclosures, the new multimedia gateway ceiling mounts are secure, convenient, and aesthetic. They are UL listed and designed to meet National Electric Code paragraphs 300-22 and 300-23 for use in the above-ceiling space. For example, the Apple TV® or other multimedia gateway is inserted into the clear plastic dome in the enclosure door. The Apple TV® is powered, network-connected, and plugged into the nearby ceiling mounted projector with a short HDMI cable. The door is closed and locked, securing the equipment in the ceiling and providing ideal communication between the multimedia gateway and those devices connecting to it.
Oberon Enclosures are:
Popular multimedia gateways and access points need to be secured. Avoid losing, or reconfiguring, expensive networking and A/V equipment.
The ceiling installation is conveniently close to the projector, eliminating long, costly HDMI cables and extenders. This in itself can pay for the enclosure. AC power receptacle simplifies powering devices.
Multiple components can be connected within the enclosure, eliminating unsightly cable runs. The low-profile, clear polycarbonate dome allows IR control of multimedia gateway devices and Wi-Fi connectivity. The textured white ABS dome is ideal for wireless access points.
