Education Connectivity Solutions

From primary through to university, our Wi-Fi and Wireless provides the best connectivity for the developing mind.

Through primary schools to universities, there is a huge demand for fast, reliable and secure Wi-Fi solutions. With large numbers of students online at the same time, all relying on the internet, it is important this infrastructure is fully supported. Connectivity within schools allows students to collaborate, share documents and work together effectively, as well as encouraging students to work outside the classroom and take their work home with them.

Students get the most out of their education when the resources they’re using are working hard for them, with no interruption or interference. Using a secure Wi-Fi solution engages students and enables them to experience a more interactive way of working. Education is rapidly moving to a more mobile world, with iPads and tablets becoming the norm within the classroom. Wi-Fi is no longer a nice to have, but a necessity.

Wi-Fi (Wireless LAN)

Within education, a scalable Wi-Fi solution is crucial to ensure each student has an uninterrupted, fast connection. With many people online at the same time, student’s rely on a secure and reliable network that will work within the dense environments of classroom settings.

Campus Connectivity (Point-to-Point/Multipoint)

Point-to-Point and Multipoint allows connectivity between one or more locations without having to lay fibre. This means the whole university campus can be on the same network, so students can move from their classroom to their dorm room without disruption. Academy Trust’s can ensure each school is on the same network too, meaning students can move between schools without disconnecting.

Networking and Security

Ensuring each student is safe on the network, Purdicom works with WatchGuard to provide secure firewalls and network security; offering solutions for network threats such as malware and ransomware. Their multi-factor authentication solution works to reduce network disruptions and data breaches arising from weak or stolen credentials, something that can be found in education with a large number of students on the network.

Uninterruptable Power Supplies

An uninterruptible power supply or uninterruptible power source (UPS) is basically a battery. It provides power back-up. Anywhere there is an appliance, especially if it is business-critical, a UPS system should be a major consideration. A UPS system will provide emergency power when the power source or mains power fails.
