The NCTE Schools broadband rollout has seen a dramatic improvement in connection speeds for Schools countrywide in recent years. However, if an effective Wi-Fi network is not in place, then Teachers and Students may see little benefit to the broadband upgrades.
A to Z work with a number of Wi-Fi Manufacturers to develop the most efficient and high performing Wi-Fi network to suit Schools of all sizes.
Many Schools have managed to date with quite basic Wi-Fi setups which can cater for perhaps 10 users per Access Point. However, with the use of technology in the classroom growing every year, a more effective Wi-Fi solution may be required.
By working with two of the main Wi-Fi manufacturers in Lancom and Ubiquiti, we can customise a suitable Wi-Fi solution for your School, from a 1 or 2 teacher National School up to a 1000+ Student Secondary School.
We offer a free on site survey of your current Wi-Fi setup so we can provide feedback on current performance, bottlenecks and suggested improvements.
The intelligent Wi-Fi solutions from LANCOM are easy to install and offer extensive security mechanisms. For more rugged environments, LANCOM additionally offers access points in metal housing and devices with integrated antennas for inconspicuous installations. We can provide:
Indoor Access Points
Wireless ePaper & iBeacon
Industrial Access Points
Outdoor Access Points
We can design, verify and troubleshoot Wi-Fi effectively with industry leading (Ekahau) site survey tools. Ekahau provide the first and leading laptop-based Wi-Fi site survey and planning tool.
Producing crystal clear heat maps and easy-to-use reports, making it simple to optimize Wi-Fi.
Our survey tools allow you to plan and create Wi-Fi networks according to your performance and capacity requirements; taking into consideration the increasing amount of wireless clients and applications such as VoIP, HD video streaming and web browsing.
