Our Wireless as a Service (WaaS) solution offers high-density, cost-effective wireless that will enable teachers to create a
reliable learning experience for every student. Instead of a large capital outlay, you simply pay a fixed annual fee per access
point – a bit like how most schools pay for their internet connections. This frees up capital for other matters and allows you to
grow the service as you need.
WaaS is securely hosted and managed remotely by us so that you don’t need to worry about managing it yourself. Simply
purchase as many or as few access points as you need, then leave it to our dedicated team of experts to provide you with a
continuous, reliable service that gives you peace of mind and allows your pupils to access learning resources wherever and
whenever, making learning truly mobile and flexible.
