Allied Telesis delivers more for Education in New Zealand…

26 Aug 2013

Schools across New Zealand have seen the benefits of deploying Allied Telesis networks within their schools for a number of years with the roll-out of the School Network Upgrade Program (SNUP) conducted by the Ministry of Education.

The SNUP project subsidises and manages internal Information Communication Technology (ICT) network upgrades (including cabling, cabinets and switches) in state and state-integrated schools and ensures optimal use of the Government’s Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) initiative.

As the exclusive supplier of network switches under the SNUP project, Allied Telesis have deployed networks over 1,400 schools in New Zealand making Allied Telesis the largest supplier of network switches to schools in New Zealand.

The choice of Allied Telesis delivers high-performance, fully featured network switches to schools across New Zealand, but the benefits go well beyond the product itself.

Allied Telesis has a significant presence in New Zealand with the organisations Research and Development centre located in Christchurch.

The team in Christchurch is responsible for the design and development of the broad range of switches and routers the organisation deploys with some of the most innovative features and technologies being developed right here in New Zealand.

In addition to the Christchurch-based team, Allied Telesis has a strong support team based in Wellington and it is the service and support delivered by this team that sets Allied Telesis apart from other vendors.

Comments like ‘..their support network is great! Even for the real technical nitty-gritty problems we've had..’ and ‘..very impressed with the new setup..’ are regularly heard from schools following the move to Allied Telesis.

And now Allied Telesis is delivering even more value to schools across New Zealand with their Gigabit Upgrade promotion.

Schools who are looking to expand their existing network, upgrade their network to support high performance wireless networks or upgrade to Gigabit to the desktop can take advantage of huge discounts Allied Telesis has to offer schools.
