Article: Connecting to the 21st Century with Cloud-Managed Wi-Fi

A 100-unit installation of a CloudCommand-powered Wi-Fi network received great local coverage in the Sand Mountain Reporter (Ala.).  Our partner, Amer Networks, delivered the solution to the Boaz School District in northeastern Alabama.

Connecting to the 21st Century: Boaz Schools Upgrade to Cloud-Managed Wi-Fi Network conveys the key value propositions of a CloudCommand cloud-managed networking platform:

  2. Consumer Usability: “Students and staff effortlessly connected across campuses and between buildings,” he said. “Teachers can immediately start expanding their lesson plans to make technology a more integral part to their classroom instruction.”
  3. Unprecedented Affordability: Caudle and three assistants installed the new system, saving the school system thousands of dollars.
