Brighton Hill Community School Supports Innovative Learning with a New Wireless Solution from Redway Networks
With pupil numbers doubling in the last three years and plans to reach full capacity in 2022, robust, scalable and secure connectivity ready to take on rising numbers of students, staff and devices was a priority for Brighton Hill Community School in Hampshire. Their 10 year old solution was struggling to offer the performance needed for students to thrive, with the IT department battling issues with both coverage and capacity.
A new wireless solution was needed to meet current connectivity requirements for existing EdTech, as well as future-proof classroom connectivity for additional students, devices, and learning platforms.
The new WiFi solution has delivered:
A cloud-based Meraki solution with an intuitive, easy-to-manage network thanks to a superior single-pane dashboard
Total classroom coverage and capacity for the next 10 years of developments in teaching and learning techniques
10 year licence with automatic firmware updates with zero downtime and error free configuration
Meraki has given us a robust, future proofed wireless network that is really simple to use and with the cloud dashboard I can manage the network from anywhere, which gives me more network visibility. The whole experience with our new WiFi from Redway Networks was professional and the service we received was absolutely brilliant. The job was completed on time and the aftercare and support has been excellent.

Classrooms were seeing a poorer student and teacher experience due to poor connectivity, holding back learning, lesson planning and staff collaboration.
Tony Eden, IT & Network Manager at Brighton Hill Community School says: “We were having coverage issues with our existing WiFi which had basically come to the end of its life. With our plans to increase student numbers and replace some of our IT computers with laptops and tablets, the first stage of the process was to upgrade the wireless network infrastructure.” Read how we helped in our case study.
