Managed wireless systems
for your school

Don’t let our name fool you, we have been installing Wi-Fi since 2003

Cablers installed their first wireless access point into Hassenbrook School in Essex back in June 2003, it was an exciting time; the technology was fairly new and it was obvious the IT landscape as we knew it, where every device needed a cable, was going to change.  Since then wireless technology has evolved and from those early 11Mbps connections with up to 8 devices we now have fully managed super-fast Wi-Fi systems capable of hosting full classroom sets of devices with speed in excess of 1 Gigabit. Cablers have continued to to install wireless systems into schools throughout Essex, Suffolk and the London Boroughs and have a wealth of knowledge on delivering Wi-Fi to schools that is fast reliable and lets teachers worry about the teaching not the tech.

Mobility in the classroom

A robust, reliable and secure network is the main component that enables the delivery of tablet or laptop based learning in the classroom. An essential element in the foundation of your communications network should be a fully managed wireless solution.

Increased demands for flexibility are being made by education providers. A wireless network brings many advantages in answer to these valid demands providing:

  • Fast log-on’s for students which reduces waiting time and increases teaching time.
  • A gateway to the vast array of multimedia and lesson resources available online quickly, easily and exactly when you need it.
  • The flexibility to easily share work and resources instantly with colleagues enabling more efficient collaboration.
  • The ability to stay connected to the network via mobile devices, increasing the overall productivity and effectiveness of staff and students within your organisation.
  • The freedom to allow different types of network access for staff, students, parents and guests.
  • A capacity to harness the power of all those non-school supplied mobile devices, incorporating them onto your network safely and securely.
  • The facility to utilise previously underused areas of your premises, turning these spaces into usable networked areas.

Our understanding of the education sector means we will design and provide a solution that meets your specific criteria exactly.  Once Cablers engage with an organisation we arrange a site visit from one of our certified WLAN specialists. They will discuss your organisations plans for and your expectations of a managed wireless network before conducting a comprehensive site survey which includes checks for interference, coverage, building fabric and cabling routes. These are only a few of the factors that need to be taken into account when designing a wireless network.

We work closely with our customers through every stage of the sales and installation process. You are informed and supported from the initial enquiry to consultation, site survey through to our presentation of a proposal. If we are successful after the proposal stage of your project, our dedication and support continues through the installation phase with testing, commissioning and finally customer handover. Cablers provide an ongoing support contract to ensure the new WLAN is always fully supported and up to date, often negating issues before they can impact on teaching and learning outcomes.

Alongside our standard wireless configurations Cablers are also able implement the advanced wireless configurations required for BYOD deployments. A well planned and delivered managed wireless network will allow you to utilise new technologies as they come on stream and get integrated into teaching.  A managed wireless network will also give you the flexibility to use your building more efficiently and empower your staff to teach in new ways without any of the frustrations that technology can bring when not introduced carefully and correctly.
