With a network that puts experience first, Chinese International School can continue to fulfill its mission of empowering students to discover new paths, build bridges, and thrive on their life journeys.
HONG KONG, December 14, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), a leader in AI-powered secure networks, today announced that Chinese International School (CIS), a leading private international school with a dynamic bilingual learning community, has selected the Juniper wireless solutions to build a robust AI-powered learning network to enable rich and immersive digital learning experiences for your students and teachers.
Established in 1983 as the first school in Hong Kong to teach an international curriculum in English and Mandarin, CIS has grown to become a leading international school in the region with an exceptional record of comprehensive academic achievement. With a growing enrollment of over 1,600 students representing over 30 nationalities and a need to better support its Vision 33 roadmap, CIS embarked on a journey this year to transform the networking experience at its Hong Kong campus. .
CIS has always been at the forefront of hybrid learning, having prioritized the implementation of digital tools and technology to address various local situations that had necessitated school closures. As the territory continues to face pandemic-related lockdowns, CIS saw an opportunity to evaluate upgrades to its campus wireless network. The goal was to be able to welcome their students later in the year with a revamped and robust wireless network, to better serve students who have become more tech-savvy and provide seamless access to apps, digital tools, and resources that they require intensive use of bandwidth.
In keeping with its commitment to delivering high-quality learning experiences, CIS has partnered with Juniper to build an AI-powered network that can meet the changing and diverse needs of its students and staff. Additionally, in keeping with the school’s own sustainability agenda, which includes a goal to become carbon neutral by 2033, CIS sought to collaborate with a vendor that shared similar goals for the environment. Juniper’s commitment to sustainability and recent pledge to be carbon neutral played an important role in the supplier selection process.
CIS deployed Juniper’s wireless access points in conjunction with Juniper Mist’s Wi-Fi warranty service, providing students and staff with uninterrupted access to reliable, high-speed connectivity anytime, anywhere on campus . With this implementation, the school’s small IT team can streamline network operations, speed troubleshooting, and gain unprecedented insight into the user experience. This is significant for CIS, which now sees more than 4,000 network-connected devices daily, from mobile phones to laptops and tablets.
With an AI-powered network powered by Juniper, CIS can support an increasing number of connected devices while keeping up with current and future network demands as more students access digital learning tools and resources. Looking ahead, the school hopes to expand the use of Mist AI capabilities at its Hong Kong campus and bring AI-powered networking to its Hangzhou campus in the future.
“Throughout our partnership with Juniper Networks, our experience has been seamless. By leveraging Juniper’s Mist Cloud and AI, we were able to schedule the APs off-site, deploy seamlessly, and have the network up and running in three days.” Our students and staff were able to return to campus the next day and connect to the network without even noticing that something had changed.With an AI-powered network, we remain bold and confident in our ability to continue to deliver superior digital learning experiences. for our students as they continue in their pursuit of excellence, commitment to service, and stewardship of our future.”
– Sunil Talwar, Deputy Director of Operations, Chinese International School
“It is an honor to work with Chinese International School to provide a world-class educational experience for their students. With our experience-first approach and AI-powered solutions, we have built a network that will support the changing needs of their students and facilitate access without problems to digital tools and resources that will unlock immersive learning experiences We remain committed to growing our relationship with CIS and look forward to working closely with them to fully realize the potential of an AI-powered network across their operations, starting with their Hong Kong campus.
