0:00 So, Dalton Public Schools is a small to mid-sized K-12 School District nestled in the hills

0:11 of Northwest, Georgia.

0:12 Just south of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

0:14 We have roughly 8,000 students in a thousand staff members and we are a one-to-one environment

0:20 K through 12th grade, each of our students and staff members have a district-assigned

0:24 device having already implemented Juniper switching across all of our wired infrastructure.

0:30 It really was a natural transition to implement Mist after our initial assessment of the product

0:36 really proved to check all the boxes.

0:38 We were looking at a Cloud solution.

0:40 Our first implementation included Mist ap43s and ap61s with wireless and wired Assurance

0:49 along with Marvis Ai and machine learning.

0:52 We're actually now beginning to implement the new products which are Mist ap45s and

0:57 63s on our current upgrades.

1:00 And as a sole Network admin, it really is highly beneficial to leverage Marvis.

1:05 And in this console to be able to identify and mitigate the issues that are not yet visible

1:11 to our customers, but I know for a fact would impact their connectivity.

1:15 Dalton Public Schools has seen numerous improvements from a metric standpoint.

1:19 Our overall user confidence and experience with our wireless network has improved significantly.

1:25 Also when issues are actually reported the visibility into the network from One console

1:31 really does provide me the capability to significantly decrease the time in which I resolve the issues

1:37 that are reported.

1:39 We can troubleshoot issues from the access point but also issues that are related to

1:45 connectivity from the client and that's huge.

1:47 We also been able to proactively identify and resolve issues well before users even

1:52 realize that there's anything negative going on.

1:54 And all these items have really led to a positive experience from our users.

1:58 Being part of a district that is always looking to innovate and improve in the way that we

2:03 educate our students and support our staff.

2:06 our Juniper Mist Solutions really do allow us to provide scalability and growth within

2:11 our infrastructure.

2:14 This also provides the reliability and resiliency for all of our interconnected devices and

2:19 it provides our customers with the experience that they have now come to expect from our

2:23 Network.
