Servite College part 2

by Ricoh Australia

We already had a relationship in place with Ricoh as they had upgraded our printer fleet. Once we understood the breadth of Ricoh's smarter workplace technologies, it was the natural choice to contract them to upgrade our network.

Shifting workloads to the cloud, supporting learning anywhere anytime

Built in two phases, the new infrastructure provides the school with a robust and scalable campus-wide network that supports both students and teachers.

Phase one involved migrating the school’s existing wireless network environment to the Cisco Aironet platform, incorporating the latest generation of Cisco Access Points and Wireless LAN controllers.

Phase two focused on consolidating and replacing the school’s core and edge switching infrastructure. Ricoh deployed Cisco Catalyst devices in the network core and Catalyst devices at the edge. The entire deployment project was completed in four weeks during the school holiday break to prevent any disruption for students or staff. As part of the project, the school’s data stores are now protected using Azure Backup and Azure Site Recovery. This means that, should a failure occur within the on-campus infrastructure, students and teachers can access their files from the cloud.
