    Enabling interactive learning tools within education

    Good title, yes???

    Take a look at the attached, it's interesting reading

    "Having a high performance network that can stream video and voice whilst delivering all the other network traffic along with high speed wireless enabling tablet, smart phone and leading edge end point devices. Utilising intelligent network attached storage for sharing files with other schools/parents and saving and backing up kids work and teachers data."

    Any questions, let me know

    Yup.

    It's all well and good saying "you should totally get this stuff, it's awesome" but how much is it going to cost? [In both money and time.]

    It's like iPads. They seem cool when people are talking about what they can do, but noone says how much it's actually going to cost you to get them working properly on a Windows network. [Things like WiFi upgrades don't usually enter the equation until AFTER they've spent the money and realised the network can't take it.]

    Well it depends on numerous things so it's pretty much impossible to say a figure.

    I read it this morning and thought it was worth sharing with you guys to show you what Netgear have done in a school recently. It might give you ideas etc. Knowledge is power

    Did you supply it? Why Netgear? Why is their "core" using what looks like a bunch of stacked edge switches rather than a proper core?

    While there's a good deal of value to be had from just moving from a mix of switch patches to one standard config, I honestly can't imagine how bad the network would have been to make anything from netgear an upgrade. I'd especially love to know why the core switch infrastructure appears to be a bunch of stacked edge switches.

    It's just a different option. We work really close with Netgear (as well as everyone else)

    It's XSM 10GB core switches - deployed in a virtual chassis.

    They make really good core switches (L2 or L3) rather than an expensive chassis. Even though Netgear do those as well.
