Another School network refresh

Another School network refresh

Answered the call to audit a primary school network that was performing badly during lockdown. So bad in fact that teachers on site were unable to deliver lessons to their pupils at home.


We discovered a flat network, unmanaged switches, looped topology with no stp.  Speedtests coming in at around 1.3 down and 0.7mbps up.


This weekend we swapped out the network with lovely shiny and correctly configured Meraki MS switches.


Customer testing went really well - speed tests now showing over 60mbps down and 20mbps up.

Excellent job Darren 👍

The big problem for a lot of schools is a teacher with no IT experience gets given the IT manager role. What you found is clear evidence of that.


Thanksfully more schools are using MSP now. 

Kind of a big deal

Nice job.
