Nowhere is this more evident than Devonport High School for Boys. Having embarked on a mission to rapidly roll out the digital delivery of teaching in the last seven years, the school needed a wireless infrastructure that could enable their ambitions for a serverless school that delivered cloud-based, personalised learning that supported students into further education or apprenticeships.

Eton gets high performance campus Wi-Fi upgrade

10 June 2022

As a boys’ boarding school, Eton College is home to 1,300 students who join at age 13 and continue until age 18. With teaching staff also living on campus, school operations never stop.
