How important is technology in education?  Let's ask this rural Montana school district.

Located in the eastern area of Montana, near the North Dakota border on MT highway 16. Savage is a small, isolated farming community. Savage School District is all too familiar with the technology challenges rural communities face: location, resources, and funding.

Challenges in Wireless: (Part 1 of 5: Wireless Coverage)

Framing the question

Great Wi-Fi is everyone’s goal, but achieving it can be a big challenge:
How do we get the maximum wireless coverage with the least interference and the best throughput?

Stating the question that way, we can see there are three basic issues we always have to deal with, and we can look at them one by one. Let’s start with wireless coverage.

Radio range

In an earlier post, we explained that creating a predictive heat map is crucial to planning a wireless network. This heat map should be designed using industry standard software tools that take a number of factors into account.

Benefits of wireless technology and doing it the right way: (Part 4 of 4)

We’ve been considering how to design wireless networks properly. In our first post,, we examined the need for a clear mission for your network, in our second, how to analyze its requirements, and in our third, the design process.

In this post, we’ll look at installing the network and making sure it works properly.
