The goal of this project is to provide wireless connectivity for the mobile laptop lab from any classroom in the school. Currently the school has 6 access points randomly placed around the campus.  His class will start by performing RF Spectrum Analysis and then perform a Site Survey to determine the correct placement of the wireless equipment. The deployment will include a Cisco 2612 wireless controller, which allows for centralized management of the access points, and 5 Cisco 1131AG lightweight access points. They will also evaluate the possibility of converting the existing autonomous access points so they can be managed from the controller as well.

Dave Wilson is leading a conversation with Shelly/Cashman representatives regarding Office 2010 textbook and the SAM software. He will be piloting their text in his special section offered on-line this Spring and Dave is invited to attend the Shelly/Cashman 2011 conference at Orlando, Florida in March. His trip is fully covered by the publisher!

"I think that could be a good fit for the online Office 2010 section. That will allow me to compare Sam to myitlab and evaluate our choices for Fall. The student cost is one of my foremost concerns." - Dave Wilson
