Policy Issues

Through the addition of six Brocade FCX stackable switches, the Fort Mill District's network will be covering six out of 13 schools by the middle of this year. What's more, the district is also considering the addition of Brocade's MLX family of routers, Server Iron ADX family of high-performance application delivery switches and the VDX family of Ethernet fabric switches.

The Washington School District in Missouri has already implemented a network featuring Brocade FCX switches and has added a Brocade MLX router for the network core and Brocade VDX switches for prioritizing services. Moreover, the district has implemented Brocade Mobility wireless controllers for centralized wireless management together with wireless Brocade Mobility access points.

Policies are unique to every school district and higher education institution, which means that many factors -- such as risk tolerance, budget and strategic institutional goals -- will come into play, said Brocade Product Marketing Manager Patrick LaPorte.

"We advise our customers to evaluate and deploy best-in breed security solutions that integrate seamlessly with our open, high performance, and reliable wired and wireless networks," LaPorte said in an e-mail Thursday. "The end result for our customers is a dependable BYOD solution to deliver the highest quality education to their students via any preferred device."
