Networking for schools

Flexible, ultra-reliable network solutions to connect and empower the modern classroom – better results for your school and your students


Deliver seamless digital learning at scale

Schools and trusts must be ready to deliver and support digital learning experiences and keep pace with soaring growth in data and device usage. Digital learning has removed the boundaries of the traditional classroom, standardising the use of digital tools and applications by every student and educator. But delivering uninterrupted digital learning requires an adaptive, modern network with the speed, security, and reliability education environments demand. In collaboration with our partner HPE Aruba Networking, we have curated a range of leading wired, wireless, and software solutions for robust connectivity and control.

Meeting the DfE's technology standards

The Department for Education has published a set of digital and technology standards for schools and colleges. These standards should be used as guidelines to help your school choose the right digital infrastructure, leading to safer and more cost-efficient practices - we design our networks to ensure we meet or exceed these specifications; you can read more about three of the standards relating to school networking in our blog series:

Most importantly, ensuring your network is up to date also enables new learning opportunities.
