Longhill school is a large secondary school nestling at the foot of the South Downs near Rottingdean catering for some 1,800 pupils and staff. The schools existing wireless network needed a total overhaul.
EnGenius Solution
The EnGenius products delivered this by utilizing the EnGenius heat mapping tool and a Wi-Fi 6 access point. Using these devices and tools, ensuring real-time diagnostics were obtained.

Longhill school has a warm and welcoming atmosphere which offers its students a structured approach to learning. Students’ academic achievement and personal wellbeing are crucial to the school. The school’s mantra is that every student will be supported in every lesson, in every classroom, by every teacher, every day.

Customer's Requirements

The school had an existing WLAN solution installed throughout its site. Unfortunately, this network came with limitations, provided poor coverage and was not capable of handling the growth in client devices which was necessary for the school if it were to continue to successfully deliver a full curriculum to its student contingent.
It became apparent that a new WLAN system needed to be sourced and installed for when the school re-opened its doors for the new school year. A high performing product incorporating the latest WiFi 6 standards, that was also enterprise level and proven to work in a high density, high demand environment was a must. However, with a limited budget available, a thorough investigation of all available solutions had to take place.

The Right Product

Following discussions with a number of secondary schools in the Brighton, Hove and the surrounding  areas that currently use EnGenius, the decision was made to install products from the EnGenius range as it was a proven product in other educational sites.

The EnGenius portfolio of networking solutions includes a comprehensive range of Cloud managed and On Premise managed wireless solutions as well as Cloud managed Gigabit, 2.5Gigabit and 10Gigabit switches that deliver long-range connectivity and robust feature sets. Incorporating latest standards, and without any ongoing subscription costs and license fees, the EnGenius solution provided everything necessary and was still able to meet the available budget. Along with a Limited Lifetime warranty and free Firmware upgrades for Life, EnGenius was the obvious choice for this project.

The Design and Installation

Longhill High school is one of the largest educational sites in Brighton, therefore before a solution could be determined a full site survey had to be conducted. The EnGenius product lead at Cable Management Warehouse delivered this by utilizing the EnGenius heat mapping tool and a Wi-Fi 6 access point. Using these devices and tools, ensured real time diagnostics were obtained.
