Two Wireless Contracts won in the Education Sector.

OpenIP Ltd has just won another two contracts within the education sector to install and maintain the wireless connectivity throughout the schools. Not only is WiFi now an essential part of business, it is an essential part of education.

Brine Leas School, Cheshire has had Ruckus Wireless within the sixth form for several years, which was installed by OpenIP, but they are now rolling this out across the whole school. The other contract that has been won is for Ribblesdale High School, Clitheroe, which also researched the need to implement a wireless facility within the school that will be hosting over 1,000 tablets.

Wireless networking works well in all types of schools. It offers educational benefits as well as administrative, often at lower costs compared to other networking solutions. It also gives access to all students, subjects, different areas of the school and for a wider range of purposes.

The flexibility of wireless networks, laptops and tablets means that any lesson can take place in any classroom; there is no need to have an IT class in a dedicated IT suite. Children’s learning needs are supported and teachers’ can innovate in how learning takes place.

"I am absolutely delighted that we have won this new business as it shows our continued growth within the education sector. Ruckus is an ideal partner in this industry due to its flexibility, security and robustness," Andrew Starr, Managing Director.

OpenIP's expert knowledge in the field of WiFi has helped us win these contracts and we are hoping to carry on using our skills and expertise in order to win more contracts within the education sector.
