several Austrian educational institutions, including commercial
centers of learning BHAK and BHAS in Krems and HAK/HAS and HLW/FW in

initiatives enabling hundreds of students to engage in online
learning and collaborate closely with instructors via their smart
phones, tablets and laptops.

indispensable to a modern school," said Gernot Hainzl, school

computer labs, library and public areas at the schools with access
points and Meru Wi-Fi controllers to manage the sizeable WLAN data
volume. Krems and Horn have each deployed 40 Meru access points along
