    We use Aruba here and it a very easy to manage solution we had Vanix (part of the Ampito Group) install them for us just after they'd installed our new network infrastructure from Extreme. Good guys!

    I would go with Aruba it what MS use world wide to deploy their campus networks. Aruba was started by some Cisco engineers who must have thought Cisco took their eye off the ball. The Wimbledon Championships uses Cisco kit to do there wireless networking that runs the ticketing resale system.

    I would look at Cisco, we have a few Cisco partners we can use but it would be worth speaking with Tom at ONI or speak with the Cisco Education folks for a good local partner.

    FFS: How difficult is it to get people to ring you back.

    Out of all the calls I made no-one was available so I left messages with machines or other people but not one has bothered to ring back yet.

    Money to spend + no call back = no order for those companies.

    Gaaaahhhh!!

    I guess I'll have to ring some more.

    BTW - I rang Cisco direct and was told that they didn't have an education department so I went to a locally based company and guess what? They didn't ring back.

    ONI (www.oni.co.uk) have the slowest website in the world (!). It's a bit ironic considering their expertise (unless it's just slow here).

    On topic - we use an Aruba wireless network - it behaves well but the cheap PoE switches to the APs aren't very good. If there really isn't a budget I'd go for a commercial Cisco system- chances are Aruba will make something wonderful happen for a little less!

    I've contaced Vanix about Aruba and left a 'call back' message - but surprise surprise no-one has called yet. I'm beginning to think I smell so bad they can't stand to pick up the phone.
