  • Additional frequency spectrum for future educational technology and IoT
  • Power savings for wireless devices

Network audits

School networks are constantly growing but often without the adequate time to carefully plan how these changes impact students and staff, IT complexity, safety and the management of your network.

This eventually leads to poorly performing networks that suffer from slow or inconsistent connectivity, cumbersome infrastructures that can’t offer agility or flexibility, increased management time, and potential security issues.

  • Inventory, configuration & analysis topology
  • Traffic light report of recommendations
  • Cyber-attack avoidance analysis
  • Fault finding and diagnosis
  • Equipment examination

Next generation switching

In today’s modern networks, switches must be highly reliable, easy to manage at scale, and compatible with the latest technologies for the foreseeable future as your school network grows.

There are many components to installing and maintaining a healthy switching network, and each requires dedicated resources.

Our cloud networking technologies drastically reduce the amount of time and effort necessary to maintain your school’s network.

  • Visibility and control over your school’s entire edge network
  • Ability to configure many stacked ports simultaneously with zero-touch provisioning
  • Identifies and classifies traffic, apps and devices across the network
  • Delivers complete network visibility and defends against threats

Cloud managed firewalls

Network security is a top priority for schools, as with devices increasing so do the threats.

Your network protection needs to adapt in line with your network to safeguard your school against cyber-attacks.

We provide a range of threat management solutions that protect your school with simple remote management.

  • Comprehensive suite of network services
  • SD-WAN and auto VPN capabilities
  • Application-based firewalling
  • Content and web filtering
  • Intrusion detection and malware protection
