How Samsung Made It Happen High-Density, Scalable Wi-Fi Plus Connected Devices Ben Brinkman, Vice President of Sales for c2mtech, says his company won the business based on their expertise and their ability to meet all of ILTexas IT demands through Samsung. "The challenge of finding a single vendor for everything was daunting," he says. "A lot of companies bid on different aspects of the contract-some with phones, others with network services or notebooks. But Samsung was the only company that had a solution for the entire set of needs. With Samsung, we had all the schools up and running by the time school started," Brinkman added. "This included a completely integrated package of cameras, phones, networks and mobile devices all configured and supported to work together with very little support." High-Speed Wi-Fi Network c2mtech deployed a Wi-Fi network consisting of Samsung WEC8050 controllers and more than 500 WEA302i access points to provide 20 GB access speed across multiple campuses. The Wi-Fi network was also integrated with more than a hundred dome cameras to monitor student safety and building security. Digital and VoIP Phones Managed from a Single System c2mtech replaced the ILTexas phone system with the Samsung OfficeServ 7400 enabling secure and encrypted phone service, voice mail and caller ID for all users over a single multisite network. The system powers both traditional and VoIP services over more than 550 Samsung DS21 digital and SMT5210/SMT5230 VoIP phones. Tablets and Chromebooks for Every Student More than 4,000 Samsung Chromebooks and 870 7-inch Galaxy tablets were preloaded with the ILTexas curriculum and anti-virus software, in addition to special firewall settings to restrict student access to approved sites and content. If a Chromebook or Galaxy tablet is damaged or lost, c2mtech can quickly disable it and deliver a new one. The entire solution took just three months to deploy, which Brinkman says would have been difficult, if not impossible with any other technology company. www.tessco.com/go/samsung_case_study ed needs on the spot, without waiting for additional equipment to be shipped. Finally, you won't have to worry about job site se- curity and valuable equipment being left unattended during off hours. Simply store the equipment at our location where it can be picked up and returned as needed. This could potentially save thousands of dollars in cost that stems from lost, stolen, or dam- aged equipment which must be replaced and save days and weeks of time in waiting for replacement materials. Keeping track of the necessary equipment and inventory for a project is one of the biggest keys to success, so we've developed inventory management tools that offer a centralized view of all inventory across proj- ect sites and depots. Whether you own the inventory or not, you'll be able to see, in one view, where your needed parts are in the ecosystem.
