    Managed WIFI Survey and Quote Required

    We currently have a trolley with its own AP and 30 Samsung NC10 netbooks but now the staff have got used to using them more and more they want them at each end of the school at the same time so its looking like they want to expand wifi coverage to the whole school. What options do I have and what would it cost and is anyone willing to come and give me a survey/quote?

    I would recommend you speak to Net-CTRL for a quote and survey, they supply Ruckus Wireless Equipment and the Technology and Price Bracket is VERY! Reliable and Affordable for Education Give them a call and have a chat with Aggy or/ Mark if he is available. Great people!

    I second James' motion. Ruckus is fantastic for it!

    Thanks for that, have spoken to Mark and Aggy before and will contact them again. Is there anyone else we should consider as its not a small undertaking and I want a complete solution from supply, install and commissioning, and I want to see what options we have to play with.

    I know Net Ctrl can price for the full lot as they have priced that for a project I have got in planning stages so do discuss it with them

    Right, spoken to Aggy at Net-Ctrl and have now got a quote to supply a managed solution, but due to the cost I have to investigate two further options, will try Xirrus but who else do you reccomend I contact?

    Net Ctrl could probably do you a Bluesocket quote as well?

    3 posts and the 3rd one advertises a company? sus?

    Not only that, said company has no references, and doesnt appear to be a ruckus gold member, which therefore they cannot offer a good price compared to net-ctrl and CP
