Networking equipment

The NSW Department of Education aims to integrate technology across education. Here's how.

Wireless connectivity

Integral to this is wireless connectivity which will:

  • increase flexibility in the use of learning spaces
  • cost-effectively increase the number of devices connected to the network
  • minimise technical administration overheads
  • support the introduction and use of a broader range of computing device types.

Connecting Country Schools project

Before purchasing any new wireless access points, first determine whether your school is included in the Connecting Country Schools project which provides funding to improve wireless services and internet access in regional schools. Further advice should be obtained from your local schools ICT support team.

Costs involved

The initial costs for acquiring wireless connectivity through WAP may include:

  • the upgrading of the Local Area Network (LAN) infrastructure
  • the purchasing of additional equipment
  • warranty costs for additional equipment.

Ongoing costs may include:

  • LAN additions and upgrades
  • the management of older and new wireless devices.

Installing WAPs

  • A WAP is needed in each of the areas where wireless connectivity will be required.
  • A Power over Ethernet (PoE) solution may be needed to generate power to the WAP.
  • Authentication to allow students to securely log on using their DoE User ID.

To configure your new WAP to the network or to expand your existing wireless network, please contact your area ICT team for assistance.
