Our experience and expertise allow us to understand the needs and drivers to deliver an enhanced learning environment, allowing students to excel and staff to collaborate and work effectively to deliver greater student satisfaction.
Student and staff expectations of technology are high and rising. Everyone expects to access information from anywhere, at any time, using an increasingly diverse range of mobile devices. In addition, the pandemic and proliferation of devices have created new opportunities and challenges within education regarding delivery and security.
How knowledge is delivered has blended with in-person and remote learning for many institutions. More than ever, education relies on technology to power the learning environment across many different systems and learning platforms.

How we help Universities
"We've moved from a situation where we had a very large flat network to a subnetted architecture with VLANs per location. We now have a very stable core network that has really moved us on in terms of flexibility and resilience. From there we've been able to overlay crucial new services such as CCTV, VOIP, retail systems, and also staff and student data services."
