Integrator, Virtual Technology Services (VTS), has been awarded a networking contract with Waverley College in Sydney.
The rollout involved a centrally managed wireless network based on vendor partner, D-Link’s business grade switches and access point to best utilise new notebook computers in the classroom.
VTS marketing manager, Belinda Marsh, said the deal was the first engagement with Waverley College, however, the integrator has a long history in education.
“The Waverly College job was a small install for us - our clients include Global Campus Management, a private educational college with more than 1000 fully managed seats,” Marsh said. “We do however have a specific expertise in the education market and are keen to provide install and configuration support where required.”
VTS had a close relationship with D-Link, Marsh said. The two organisations enjoedy a similar philosophy when approaching customers.
“Our approach is to work with vendors who provide the best product, pre- and post sales support, that suits client requirements,” she said. “On this basis, we do have a strong relationship with D-Link, as its product quality is excellent and its philosophies around fully supporting SME are in synch with ours.”
Waverley College is a boy’s school with 1200 to 1400 students spread across grades 5 to 12.
The rollout was completed with no disruption to student or teachers. It has not imposed additional support burden or other overheads on the school.
