    The LGfL wireless service makes use of the LGfL WAN and allows users from a suitably-equipped school to access their school’s local wireless network using LGfL USO authentication.

    The system is centrally managed by Cisco Wireless network controllers that provide core authentication services for the network-wide secure wireless capability. These are located in the two data centres that run the LGfL network.

    Schools can specify how many wireless networks they wish to broadcast and can control which users have access to each one. Schools frequently choose to configure wireless access to their curriculum and admin networks for certain staff and groups of students and separate a guest network that simply grants access to the internet. All internet access is then filtered by the WebScreen 2.0 filtering service.

    Wireless network access is configurable via an easy-to-use management interface where schools can create guest user access and restrict or allow the access of third party machines.
