Managed Wireless Network Solutions for Schools

For many schools, the move away from delivering lessons in the traditional ICT suite to a more flexible approach including connected devices such as mobiles, tablets, PC’s and laptops in the classroom or breakout areas, means that existing wired networks or simple, standalone wireless routers are not capable of providing the required access to internet and network resources where they are needed. Blue Box IT has provided cost-effective, robust and secure managed wireless solutions that meet the needs of schools for many years, and working with two of the leading wireless technology vendors in the market, we can ensure that your school can benefit from the latest technology, safe in the knowledge that your solution can grow and develop as your requirements change over time.

We deliver, implement and manage wireless networks that can:

  • Take your school technology outside of the ICT suite - bringing mobile learning to areas of the school that do not currently have network capability or even outside in the school grounds or separate school buildings.
  • Provide a system allowing consistent access across the whole of school, avoiding dropouts and downtime.
  • Enable access with multiple device connections at same time - even when accessing data rich applications or internet video streaming.
  • Provide the backbone for interactive classroom teaching and learning by enabling the mirroring of mobile devices.
  • Expand your school network coverage to buildings and areas without the headache of large cabling projects and associated costs.
  • Free up valuable space in school by allowing the traditional ICT suite to be removed and allowing alternative technologies to be used in other areas.
  • Allow the school to develop the use of new technologies meeting the needs of the new Computing curriculum.

The starting point for the implementation of any managed wireless solution is to ensure that a comprehensive wireless survey is completed. Blue Box IT provides a no-obligation, free of charge survey to any school considering the installation of a wireless solution.
