One of Kent’s most prestigious Grammar schools where Wi-Fi is widely used by staff and students.
The school’s ethos and activities are diverse and help develop character, leadership, compassion, collaboration and interests for life.
Skinners School’s Requirements
- Installation of a new fibre broadband throughout the school, to provide a safe and secure network
- New Mitel telecoms handsets
We upgraded the network as well as installing a secondary ring of fibre to allow for business continuity. All switches and hardware were upgraded to allow for greater data transition. The new improved network also allowed the school to have a reliable wireless solution throughout the school enabling staff and pupils to use Wi-Fi devices in a safe and secure environment.
The old Panasonic telecoms solution was removed and utilising the improved connectivity, a new IP Mitel phone solution was installed routing calls through SIP trunks instead of ISDN channels. This has ensured the school is future proofed and their telecoms setup is cost efficient with free calls to local, national and UK mobile numbers as well as offering considerable cost savings with the switch to SIP.
