BYOD Considerations - What is required?
I have been asked to look into a BYOD scheme for the school I work in and want to ensure that I have all my bases covered and have a full understanding of what is required before committing to a timescale. I have searched around at the way that other people on here have done it but not being all that high end technical a lot of it goes over my head. (I more so manage my site and technicians)
I have spoken with our higher end techs and they have said that realistically the best way of achieving this and keeping the network secure would be to VLAN a BYOD wireless network and then use WPAD/Transparent proxy and have students use Home Access + for there network files which sounds simple enough, until you look at a cab and see the previous ICT never labeled the ports so working out what runs where is always a time consuming exercise.
We are split over 3 separate buildings, with one building not having a managed solution. (Standard standalone POE APs) - Would I be right in thinking this would need to be replaced to make BYOD a reality?
Other glaringly obvious questions are:
How would I give students the ability to print? Is this even possible?
How would I be able to track which user is browsing which website to ensure child safeguarding?
Really I would like to know in a more simplistic explaining how your sites are currently achieving this, what technologies you are using, and in which effective way they are being used. :-)
Thank you for any help/insight you can provide.
