We're living in the wireless age, and the technologies your students and staff use, for the most part, depend upon a strong, consistent wireless (WiFi) connection.
This might surprise you, though. Did you know that this move away from wired technology and towards wireless technology has actually increased the importance of cabling in a school or throughout a campus? It's true! In order to support the wireless needs of your students and staff, you need a robust infrastructure. That infrastructure needs to be capable of supporting tens to hundreds of devices per room, depending on the size of the classroom, and at times, all of those devices might connect to the network simultaneously.
It's a huge undertaking, and that's before you even consider all the other peripheral technologies that will need to connect to your network, like wireless sensors and Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, which offer smarter and more efficient security and building automation systems. Gone are the days of WiFi in dorm rooms being a special perk; it's expected now that every student in every room will be able to access the Internet on their phone, laptop, gaming console and more. You'll also need to provide WiFi in common areas like libraries and dining halls, and even throughout outdoor spaces. That's a lot of coverage, and all of these use cases require more cabling and more bandwidth to the access point.
PanGen is here to help. The PanGen Cat 6A solution from Prysmian Group and Panduit provides the necessary bandwidth for wireless access points (WAPs), while also offering superior heat dissipation when using PoE to power those access points. PanGen's Cat 6A cabling solution can even support extreme wireless installations, making it easy to get the connectivity you need. You'll get the reliable performance that you - and all who use your campus or building - require to enable consistent wireless connectivity.
