Historic L.A. High School Deploys 802.11n WiFi In Support Of 1:1 Computing


Marymount High School in Los Angeles has recently deployed Xirrus 802.11n WiFi arrays campus-wide as it prepares to roll out a new 1:1 computer initiative.

The independent, all-girls Catholic high school will utilize the new wireless network throughout its 6.5-acre campus to support a rage of wireless educational tools. The deployment is aimed at giving the school increased flexibility without diminishing the overall power of the network.

"We selected Xirrus for our Wi-Fi implementation because they have the best architecture available--their Wi-Fi Arrays deliver more coverage, more bandwidth, and more throughput with less devices, cables, and switch ports than anything else on the market today," said Patrick Lynch, director of technology at Marymount High School, in a prepared statement. "As we roll-out our 1:1 computer initiative, it is imperative that we begin with a powerful, robust wireless network that will give all our 400+ student body and staff the same user experience as traditional wired connections--Xirrus delivers that."

Marymount High School was established in 1923 and is located across from UCLA. The college-preparatory school serves girls throughout the Los Angeles metropolitan area.
