Matrix IT Solutions recently undertook an installation of a Wi-Fi solution that was necessary at a local school in Portsmouth, Hampshire.
The school itself has students from Nursery, right through to Senior School age. This is a grand total of 450+ students plus staff. Therefore, a large infrastructure was needed to handle the traffic that the school would produce.
The product was deemed best for this was the Unifi Access Point. In total, 16 of these were installed around the premises over a two-day installation period (including trunking and neatening of cabling). With minimal cabling in mind, the access points were powered using a POE Switch, so only one cable was necessary to each adapter, rather than the 3 that would be used with a standard POE Injector.
With Zero Handoff (enabling users to move from one Access Point to another, without experiencing any connection interruptions), this is an ideal option for any ‘multi-user’ business.
