    Re: Wireless ... Give me your brains

    We are very near the end of the installation of our site wide wireless network. The company that did it for us are one of the best companys i have ever had to work with (AVC) If you need details let me know. The consultants are very much in the know and have been there everytime we have just a slight problem.

    They recommended the kit that we are using (Senco AP's and Cisco Cards) works a dream and allows us to do SIMS.NET registration over wireless for over 170 laptops. All secure. All stable (Well as close as you can get) Its been a fun project even though i wasn't involved from the very start

    mmm Bromcom? Googling that brings up a supplier of a MIS solution but not the one we use, SIMS.NET is a Capita Product. Forgive me if this is not what you mean.

    The issue was that Bromcom supposedly had a patent for electronic registration over a wireless network.

    The legal case of the Govt vs Bromcom was hailed as a success on both sides ... Bromcom reckon that it asserted their right to say that the patent is theirs but the DfES have marked it as a success for opening up electronic registration. I have yet to find someone that can work out who won.

    Needless to say there are a few products now the do electronic registration over a network, including wirelessly, and I have yet to hear of them being taken to court.

    Re: Wireless ... Give me your brains

    Oh i see. Well as far as im aware Capita do a lot of business with schools in our LEA and in fact all over the country and ive never heard of them being taken to court. Mind you haven't really been in this game long enough to know about the legal case of the Govt vs Bromcom. How could they patient something like that all it is a relational database pretty user frontend that communicates using bulk standard TCP/IP, Its not like they have developed anything new, Just something compatiable.

    Concerning the Bromcom vs the DfES issue, our LEA sent out a note basically saying ignore Bromcom and just do it anyway...
