Brampton Primary School choose System IT as their IT solutions provider to complete a full revamp of their current IT infrastructure. The school had a large amount of IT equipment which was not working correctly so engaged with System IT to help get things back on track. System IT quickly identified that the core IT infrastructure was not adequate to meet the school's needs, the findings were presented to the school and a plan agreed on a way forward.

System IT replaced a large number of old physical servers with a new Virtual platform based on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2. The solution allowed the school to gain access to features and functions that were not possible in the past. The performance of the school IT infrastructure was now vastly improved and staff and pupils had access to the latest technologies.

As the school had a large number of laptops System IT identified that the school would benefit from a site wide Wireless network, meaning that staff and pupils could have connectivity in any building in the room. System IT carried out a full wireless survey to ensure that the wireless access points were installed in the optimal locations around the building. Brampton Primary School staff and pupils now have wireless connectivity wherever they are in the building which was never possible before.
