With school budgets falling, a robust cost effective WiFi solution was required with all the benefits of an Enterprise solution but at a budget the school could afford, but importantly have no ongoing costs.
The school investigated other WiFi solutions, and the EnGenius was selected for a Free trial period being implemented in various parts of the school to see how it performed.
The IT Technician Brian Hooper said that “this is a very easy solution to use and its intuitive management provides good analytics of the users across the site”.
The EnGenius provides a seamless WiFi blanket across the school and its superior signal strength enables coverage for users not only in the playgrounds but the school Nature area where lessons are also held in the summer.
An EnGenius EWS5912FP Gigabit PoE controller was installed with 9 x EWS310AP access points as a direct replacement for the Netgear As the IT Technician is part-time, the EnGenius was supplied pre-configured and was implemented simply and easily and was up and running in minutes. The EnGenius comes with a Lifetime Warranty*, Free Fimware upgrades for Life and Free Technical Support.
