Ten Ten Systems has developed and installed a 21st century IT solution with a seamless 5G wireless network across the campus at Myddelton College, the first Microsoft Showcase School in North Wales.
Ten Ten Systems, itself a Microsoft Gold Partner, was approached to install the state-of-the-art server and Wi-Fi, in addition to the reconfiguration and optimisation of present hardware on the campus.
Existing tech was incorporated into the framework and as part of the new system, Microsoft Surface tablets have been issued to all students and teachers. These will be used in conjunction with multiple display surfaces in each classroom. Other features of the campus infrastructure include 5G wireless access points, Microsoft Office365, 100Mb fibre optic broadband and a cloud storage solution.
The aim is to make the school’s tech system a secure environment for the students, but also seamless across the campus. The SonicWall security enables monitoring of the students’ activity, via user ID for each individual. Rather than simply focusing on the immediate installation, Ten Ten also looked at the number of students expected to attend the college in the long term and its future technology aspirations.
