WiFi for Education

Purdicom provides expert assistance to VARs & MSPs in the education sector with the technology to enable WiFi access across schools, colleges and universities to benefit teachers, students and visitors.

The impetus to move to higher speed, more reliable WiFi is increasing in this sector and the technology needs to be secure, supply universal coverage and have connections that don’t drop out. With tablets and laptops fast replacing textbooks and exercise books, educational establishments require strong, stable and competent wireless networks to support the constant growth of mobile devices used within their grounds.

WiFi also has to be able to reach across communal areas, temporary classrooms, on-campus housing as well as traditional school or college buildings. However, with tighter budgets and busy IT staff, making the transition to WiFi is difficult.
