Jeff Crawford is the manager of networking and security for East Grand Rapids Public Schools in Michingan. Mr. Crawford was to struggle helping students to go online using their very own devices. After rejecting many vendors and convinced he was capable to develop his own ideas, he never gave up until he found a solution initially intended for use at the middle school level but right now expanded to the district's high school.
"That's where Avenda came in. Avenda is the developer of a "network policy solution for securing wireless and wired access solutions for any operating system." After an unexpected meeting with the vendor at a trade show, Crawford came up with a plan for integrating the Avenda's solution for the 2,800-student East Grand Rapids School District, which comprises three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. Known as eTIPS, Avenda's 5000 Series NAC platform is a network access security suite that features guest access and provisioning, RADIUS authentication, 802.1X support, and endpoint device detection and management."
