WINS (WIreless Networks in Schools)
Today Croydon Hills Primary School became the second school in the state to roll out a wireless network based on the WINS program, and the first to be completed entirely by the local technician.
It was a long couple of weeks doing the site survey, configuring all the access points and then connecting them and placing them in the right place. The final part of the puzzle was put in place this afternoon when the EduPaSS server arrived and was installed.
Not that it’s entirely finished mind you. There are still certificates to create and install on all the teacher laptops, and once we have some students back we’ll begin the process of real-world usage which will see us fine tuning the placement of Access Points for the next 12-18 months.
