May 11, 2011 - PRLog -- John Willmott School (JWS) of Birmingham in the West Midlands, UK was built in 1958. Today it is a specialist technology college for 11-18 year olds with 1300 pupils and 500 staff. The school doesn’t just teach technology, it uses it to the full in bringing education to its students in the most efficient and modern way it can, and in providing the staff with a networked infrastructure to maximize their time, productivity and deliverance of teaching and learning.
Jamie Cook, Director of First Class Technologies (Extricom Installing Partner), introduced the school’s ICT Operations Manager Mr Rahman to a number of solutions including offerings by HP, Ruckus, Aruba, 3Com and Extricom. Cost was an important consideration, but not the only one on the school management’s agenda. Reliability was of the essence as connectivity problems were costing an extensive amount of support time and worse still, wasted teaching time. Knowing already what an overhead system qoxmu management can be, ease of network management was high on the list too, as was a built-in capability to support 802.11n, an important part of the school’s future infrastructure strategy. Extricom’s solution provided all the requirements in an affordable package including a simple web-based management system, independence of the supplier’s engineers for changes in the future, and above all, reliability of performance.
Mr Rahman confirmed “Nearly every teacher at JWS will tell you of the pressure felt at the start of the lesson until everyone had successfully logged in to the network. No more. All of a sudden, the staff are beaming. No matter what class or room they’re in, they just switch on and they’re connected to the wireless network”.
