Polish School’s Network Upgrade Ensures Students Graduate Ready for the Workforce

The School Complex in Chocianow launched a project to deal with the heavy workload and improve the low capacity. The school’s partner, System-3, chose Zyxel’s access points, switches and ATP firewall to modernize the infrastructure. The backbone of the upgraded network is based on fiber optic cabling with a 10-Gigabit capacity, ensuring data transfer and program use are smooth every time. The network switches were replaced with the highly efficient XGS2210 series L3 Aggregation Switches and GS1920-24HPv2 series Smart Managed PoE Switches. In addition, XS3800-28 L3 Aggregation Switches were installed for easy switching between intuitive Nebula cloud management and standalone management. The network was then secured by the ATP500 Firewall, providing a robust first line of defense against attacks. To address the biggest challenge – the slow internet speeds due to the large number of supported devices – NWA5123-AC HD APs were deployed. These use transmit beamforming and multi-user MIMO technologies to provide reliable high-density WiFi connections for numerous clients at the same time. Thanks to the new network, students are now enjoying a better learning environment and developing skills that meet future job market needs.

Modernizing the school’s network infrastructure was an ambitious and complicated project, but we weren’t worried. Thanks to Zyxel’s products, meeting the network management expectations and satisfying students’ needs was easily achievable.
