New Lexington City Schools & Apple Configurator
Mass configure and deploy iPads. Prepare devices Configure multiple devices simultaneously Update devices to the latest version of iOS Create and restore a backup of settings and app data from one device to other devices Import apps into Apple Configurator and sync them to new devices Use the built-in editor to create and install iOS configuration profiles Enroll devices with your Mobile Device Management solution for remote management Supervise devices ( When supervised students can not connect to iTunes ) Organize supervised devices into custom groups Automatically apply common configurations to supervised devices Quickly reapply a configuration to a supervised device and remove the previous user’s data Import apps into Apple Configurator and sync them to supervised devices Define and apply common or sequential names to all devices Restrict supervised devices from syncing with other computers Requirements: OS X or later Free from Apple The computer you use Configurator on - is the only computer you can use to manage.
Using 3 Bretford sync trays (10 iPads each for a total of 30) and 1 MacBook with Apple Configurator – Using a “master image” I was able to setup 600 iPads in 1 week. I brought in students to put the cases on. They put 600 cases on in 3 days. 1:1 Set Up – 600 iPads

Apple Configurator You have to touch every device. Meraki System Manager App Store Sometimes we have problems with profiles communicating. Locating Devices. – Based on Service Provider / ip location.

Apple Configurator The cost – Free Once figured out – it is easy to use Wiping out devices is quick and easy. Meraki System Manager The cost – Free Easy to use Cloud based – no equipment The Good The Bad
Cloud Managed Wireless n Wireless LAN New Lexington City Schools &
We had no managed Wi-Fi in the district. (Several Apple Airports). We were going to a grade :1 solution with iPads and needed a more robust wireless solution. After looking at several vendors and talking with our ITC we thought price wise the Meraki was the best fit for us. Because our ITC agreed to purchase the Meraki Access Points in bulk (offering all of their schools Meraki APs) they could drive the price down. The #1 reason - the free MDM solution Meraki offers. Why did we choose Meraki ??

Ease of Deployment I hired North West Regional Systems out of Mansfield. They brought two people and we had the 33 APs installed and online in 2 school days. Literally took them out of the box and connected them to POE switches. I played with the Dashboard for a couple hours and had them all configured. Now I just tweak as needed. Now - if we add new APs we just plug them in and add them to our dashboard and we are finished. Currently we have: 3 SSIDs: Staff Students Guest (this is on a timer – we do not allow during the school day).
Wireless Project Cost $625 per/AP/year for a 5 year license. 2 - HP Port POE Switches $ Port POE Switch $150 AP installation (North West Regional Systems) $2200 Totals: Year 1 $9175 (1 Year License Fee, APs, Switches, and Installation) Yearly License Fee: $4125 Original set up: New Lexington High School (33 MR16, 1 MR66) Additional APs this year New Lexington High School (35 MR16, 1 MR66) New Lexington Middle School (24 MR16)
