Metaminds: Making Romanian Schools Safer and Smarter One Step at a Time

In partnership with Telekom Romania Mobile Communications, we have successfully implemented the core infrastructure of a two-factor authentication solution.

 

As a local company, known for integrating award-winning technologies and IT solutions, we have successfully implemented the core infrastructure that will allow more than 1,5 million students and teachers from 4500 schools across Romania to connect, in the near future, to The National Integrated Platform – Wireless Campus, an initiative run by ARNIEC Agency / RoEduNet.

 

The program included the installation of a local infrastructure consisting mainly of Wi Fi tech, an extremely valuable resource for the 1.736 schools located in less developed areas. The platform will also allow for differentiated access policies to be implemented, depending on variables like student/ teacher categories, schedule, age groups and more. All this will calibrate the access according to the usersreal needs. One of the most important aspects of the project resides in providing protection against the inherent risks of using resources and services of an interconnected open system, such as the use of the internet for other purposes than those stated in the educational projects.

 

 

It was our expertise and reputation of being a trustworthy integrator of complex security and authentication solutions that made Telekom Romania choose us as their key partner in the project. In order to achieve our goal, we teamed up with the mobile household name BlackBerry and integrated the BlackBerry 2FA – a highly dependable two-factor authentication solution, aimed to secure access within the Wi-Fi Platform for students and teachers alike.

 

Smart Education Systems are critical for students to thrive in today’s economy. BlackBerry is delighted to partner with Metaminds to provide students across Romania with the advanced technology they need to securely and efficiently access the resources they require to succeed.‘ – Adam Enterkin, Senior Vice President EMEA, BlackBerry

 

This means that 4.500 Romanian schools, summing up over 1.5 million teachers and students, will receive an update to their learning platform. The new flawless UX and top-notch security of the infrastructure will ensure a trusted collaboration environment and more efficient learning.
