With hundreds of educators and thousands of students depending on steady, uninterrupted power, K-12 education requires a system that never sleeps. Oshkosh School's Network Manager, Jeffery Herzig, and his team are responsible for keeping class in session for 19 total school districts. Truly, the challenges here are potentially endless—wired and wireless connections, troubleshooting classroom and admin IT tickets, tracking each issue, etc.
Having experience in other districts, they were aware of the magnitude of power efficiency needed to keep the lights on, have backup in case of emergencies, and the ability to seamlessly sync with each machine that needs to consistently run simultaneously. 10 years ago, he and his team heavily pushed to install a new, state-of-the-art UPS as the previous year’s systems were incredibly heavy, expensive, and relatively unreliable.
