Cabling Infrastructure

Though many schools and academies have their own technicians, school network upgrades are a major operation requiring specialist knowledge and planning from network engineers.

As school IT specialists we understand the unique ways in which school curriculum and administrative networks currently work in schools, with a wealth of experience in replacing and upgrading them.

Building a network for your school

The school network is a crucial lifeline for any school. If your network goes offline, it causes major problems and disruption to the life of the school, making files, shared resources and the internet unavailable. We design networks that are resilient, reliable, and secure that it can easily grow alongside your school’s increasing needs.

With over 20 years’ combined experience in consultation, design and implementation of fibre-optic and structured cabling networks for both the private and public sector across the UK, our experience spans a range of disciplines and installations. All initial consultations are provided free of charge and without obligation and all of our engineers are DBS certified.

In fact, we are so confident that our products and installation services are of the highest quality that we offer a 25 year manufacturer backed warranty on all new network cabling installations.

Bespoke networks

We work with you to understand your school’s ICT needs in each area of your school building, whether you want an audio-visual solution in the gym, wireless access in the playground or PCs, tablets and laptops in every classroom, we will design a solution specific to your school.

Merge networks

It no longer makes sense to keep administrative and curriculum networks separate. Many of our schools are moving over to a single network to benefit from improved efficiencies and communication as well as ensuring the security of sensitive data.

Your IT network must continue to meet the needs of students and staff. And that’s when rebuilding, redesigning or reconfiguring your network can deliver clear benefits. Whether you want to speed up a slow network, or stop using costly management software which no longer meets your requirements, we can design specific solutions appropriate to the unique needs of your school.
