Richard Collyers adopts unified network

The college of Richard Collyer has replaced a patchwork of network equipment with technology from the SAS group in an overhaul to support its planned growth.

The sixth-form college in West Sussex requires a network to support 500 PCs, interactive whiteboards, streaming large media files as well as providing internet connections.

Prior to the upgrade the college used a communications network that had evolved over time, although it was unreliable and incapable of supporting planned growth.

"The frequent network problems were causing us serious headaches and affecting our teachers' ability to do their jobs," said Peter Swift, IT manager at the college. "Working with the SAS Group we were able to identify the root cause of the problems and put in place a new infrastructure plan on a sensible schedule, that gave us the resilience we need today, plus the flexibility to change and grow in the future."
