The Challenge

Cherry Orchard Primary School is a larger than average primary school with two sites serving a flourishing multi-cultural society in inner city Birmingham. With an increase demand for ICT, the school wanted to continue to provide outstanding ICT to its pupils and community. After much research, we found Network IT 24 to offer the best Ruckus Wireless install and support service and contacted them for more details.

The Solution

Having carried out a routine site survey our IT consultant discovered a number of factors that were affecting the existing wireless network. In order to provide Cherry Orchard Primary School with the best Wi-Fi possible, we were advised to upgrade the network infrastructure from 100mbps to 1000mbps switches and upgrade the unreliable and slow Netgear System, as this was causing a bottleneck. After various providers carrying out site surveys for a better solution. Network IT 24 recommended a smarter wireless solution from Ruckus Wireless consisting of the Zone Director 1100 and 6 ZoneFlex 7982 access points to cover all of the junior site. The junior site now has hassle free wireless access for all its devices including laptops and iPads.

The Outcome

The new Ruckus Wireless Network is now providing our school with fast and reliable wireless access with only six access points which we are very impressed with. The new Wi-Fi and improved Network Infrastructure has provided a fantastic outcome for our school, pupils and community. Network IT 24 have been supportive throughout and worked during term time with minimal disruption to the school. We were highly impressed by their hard work and continued support. Their team of friendly staff have supported us throughout from the initial call to post installation care.
