Technology has moved on at such a pace in recent years that ICT is no longer a lesson to be taught, but a tool to use for the teaching of other subjects.

With the increase in 1:1 learning, BYOD, and online learning, it is imperative that schools have a sufficient WiFi system in place.

D-Link offers a wide range of effective wireless networking products using the newest generation of WiFi technology including 802.11ac (‘Wave 2’) Wireless AC Standard technology, ranging from access points and VPN routers, to wireless controllers and management platforms.

With no costly subscription fees, solutions like these have been adopted by many schools looking to achieve fast, secure networks with the peace of mind that their investment is futureproof.

Similarly, the need for security in schools is something that has been discussed at large over recent years, many coming to the conclusion it’s simply a necessity in 2018.

Safeguarding pupils, staff and assets is vital for contemporary establishments looking to flourish in the current climate. Deploying CCTV the traditional way brought with it an array of problems due to grainy footage and inconsistency.

D-Link has a diverse offering of IP surveillance cameras that provide high quality round-the-clock video monitoring for indoor and outdoor deployment that are easy to set up and maintain.

Features such as remote viewing, flexible camera positions and easy distribution to third party officials, such as the police, make incorporating these solutions manageable, cost effective and complimentary to the needs of today’s educational environment.

Our IP Surveillance solutions include access to Management Software that provides free security video recording, live view and playback management for IP cameras and video servers, as well as cloud video recording storage devices. This gives budget conscious institutions peace of mind that following the upfront cost, there are no hidden fees eating at resources.

D-Link works closely with its partners to ensure that education institutions receive the necessary bespoke and tailored product packages and support that they need from distributors and resellers.
