As demands on Wi-Fi infrastructure grow and technology cycles move more quickly, keeping up with the latest Wi-Fi developments has become a full-time job. As a result, more and more IT administrators are considering outsourcing the operations of their wireless networks to a third party so they can get back to their core responsibilities. Wi-Fi network architectures have evolved significantly making it possible to offer cost-effective managed Wi-Fi services. This webinar looks at the pros and cons of managed Wi-Fi services, and why they are worth exploring for an improved end-user experience.
Demands on WiFi networks are constantly rising as users adopt new devices and applications. In 2015, manufacturers released the next generation of WiFi products supporting 802.11ac Wave 2 technology, which delivers another boost in wireless network performance. This webinar discusses the technology improvements available in Wave 2 gear, the impact on network design, and what network managers can do to prepare.
As we move into the heart of funding season for E-rate 2016, did you know that your school or library does not have to wait for funds to flow from USAC to start your project? Through the BEAR (Billed Entity Applicant Reimbursement) process, you can begin your projects immediately, then get reimbursed later from USAC. The BEAR process means your school or library can make the best use of the time available this summer without depending on potentially unpredictable funding cycles. Once you receive your FCDL (Funding Commitment Decision Letter), you can proceed knowing your funding has been approved.
This webinar will help you understand the BEAR process, as well as the SPI (Service Provider Invoice) and other forms and processes you are about to work through for E-rate 2016. Hear from Brian Stephens, E-rate expert from Funds for Learning, on what you need to do to prepare and who will be available for any questions you may have.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- BEAR and SPI applications and requirements
- Upcoming deadline and dates
- The next steps in the process
- Tips and best practices
- Interactive Q&A with our experts
As always, let us know if you have any questions by sending an email to email@example.com.

Learn the 5 Most Important Things About Deploying a Fast, Reliable Wi-Fi Network at a College or University
Reliable Wi-Fi is critical to colleges and universities today – that is nothing new. Wi-Fi networks designed and deployed in the last two years – or earlier – cannot support the influx of devices hitting the network and do not deliver upon ever-increasing student-bandwidth demands. Teachers require unwavering network connectivity to support a collaborative wireless classroom-learning environment.
