Eton College is working with Extreme Networks to install a Gigabit Ethernet data networking infrastructure.

The 560-year-old public school said the upgrade was necessary to support 100mbps connections to its desktops and to provide a foundation for its future plans, including IP telephony and a strategy for personalised learning. The network will also give the school the flexibility necessary to control access to its local area network, which covers 400 buildings.

The infrastructure will be monitored remotely and supported by IT services company Data Integration.
