WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY IN SCHOOLS
"Subnet continues to architect and develop solutions to keep our community connected.”
Craig Raines, IT Manager, Valley View Secondary School
Valley View is a public secondary school located in Para Vista, South Australia with a focus on maximising the potential of all its students through teaching and learning support structures. For the past 12 years, Subnet has worked alongside their staff to create, build and execute an efficient IT infrastructure. This has been in pursuit of Valley View’s mission to realise their vision of being an ICT innovator delivering exceptional curriculum innovation.
Previous IT infrastructure and policies affected the way teachers delivered learning materials as well as how students accessed and interacted with them. Certain areas in the school, like the science labs, had no wireless connectivity thus limiting teaching methods and increasing the frequency of overbooked rooms.
With 270 students and 40 members of staff, all connected to the school’s aging wireless network, the school felt that they weren’t fully equipped to meet their growing technological needs.
The Subnet Solution:
Subnet performed a wireless audit of the site and assessed what was required to transform the school’s current infrastructure to make it more reliable and efficient. Subnet then proceeded to build a new AC wireless network across the school with the help of the on-site IT Manager. We worked together to replace any out of warranty infrastructure and reduce the risk of loss of data by upgrading the core infrastructure – the hosts, storage and backup.
