Modern education is mainly modern information and communication technologies, vision and presentation devices. The entire arsenal of modern tools used in education is based on a computer network. This must therefore be sufficiently efficient to handle large amounts of multimedia content passing through it. And that is why network infrastructure elements should be selected based on their effectiveness and reliability.
An important element – especially in the cost-optimized model with a shared services center for many outlets – is the central management of the pool of network devices. On the other hand, the institution is obliged by a number of laws to protect sensitive data against unauthorized access, as well as students themselves against inappropriate content on the Internet. This indicates the need to choose a flexible Firewall system that will guarantee traffic filtration at the appropriate level.
