SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR HARD-WIRING A CLASSROOM and WIRELESS DEVICES to SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION HAZARDS
More and more schools are implementing a 'No cell phone' policy during school hours due to distractions that negatively impact learning. However, much of this problem could be resolved with the removal of WiFi and the return to hard-wired Internet which is faster, cheaper, more reliable and more secure than wireless networks.
Unlike WiFi, hard-wired Internet gives teachers more control as to when the Internet is accessed in the classroom and allows oversight to ensure the content is appropriate for learning. Hard wired Internet allows oversight that benefits our children while also significantly reducing their daily exposure to RFR. Peer reviewed science overwhelmingly suggests cumulative Radio Frequency Radiation is a health risk, particularly for developing children. Hard-wired Internet reduces RFR exposure making it the safest, healthiest choice for our children.
Classroom Wiring Plan:
One Central 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switch mounted on the center of the ceiling
Six to Eight tentacles that travel to the corners and wall-midpoints of the room and down the walls to desk-height
Four to Six additional 8-port Gigabit Ethernet Switches mounted on the wall at desk height (the tentacle feet)
Flexible, colored tentacle conduits that easily fasten Ethernet cables to the ceilings and walls, eliminating the need to snake the cables behind ceilings and walls
Typical Classroom Wiring Cost: US pricing
$250 for five 8-port Gigbabit Switches
$125 for OctoWired Flexible Conduit System
$ 25 for Ethernet cable and connectors
$100 for two hours of labor to install
$500 total per classroom
USB-to-Ethernet Adapters for iPads
For each iPad: Apple USB3 Camera Adapter
For each iPad: Anker 10/100/1000 Mbps USB-to-Ethernet adapter
For each Chromebook: Anker 10/100/1000 Mbps USB-to-Ethernet adapter
