Supporting Ambition Plans

We’ve been working with West Suffolk College since 2003 and have managed a number of projects over the years, including a complex site-wide wireless solution and a major virtualisation project involving 40 servers.

We have also supported the college in their transition from single site to multi-site, providing connectivity, hardware and provided support.

We continue to work closely with their IT manager to identify and recommend technologies that will support their plans for growth.
