A GGR Event: Future Proof Network & Wireless Infrastructure
Richard Martin, CIO at Ark, a network of 36 schools in the UK and now recognised as one of the highest achieving academy groups in the country, will present an informative and entertaining session on the challenges of delivering IT within education, in both state and independent schools, with multiple sites and supporting thousands of users.
Richard will speak about his latest initiative at Ark in replacing the previously outsourced technicians and managers with local employed staff, but now outsourcing the specialist expertise of networking to GGR Communications.
Now, critical local activities are managed by their own staff but Ark have the added advantage that their high level technical support is now managed by skilled and experienced third party outsourcing.
The presentation takes place on Friday 8th December at 10.00am in the GGR box at Sandown Park Racecourse, and all those considering updating their network infrastructure across multiple sites and/or installing wireless networks, or looking for a managed network provider are invited to attend.
It’s a great opportunity to meet and network with GGR’s existing customers and with members of the GGR team in a relaxed and informal environment, with full hospitality and a few surprises thrown in there too!
