Next generation Switching

Network switches are the foundation of any school or college network and are expected to last anywhere from 5 to 10 years or more. In today’s modern networks, switches must be highly reliable, easy to manage at scale, and compatible with the latest technologies for the foreseeable future as your network grows.

There are many components to installing and maintaining a healthy switching network, and each requires dedicated resources. At Redway Networks, we provide cloud networking technologies as these can drastically reduce the amount of time and effort necessary to maintain a modern school network, whilst still providing a secure, efficient, and reliable solution.

We provide zero touch cloud provisioning solutions to schools and colleges that deliver low total cost of ownership as they reduce the costs associated with configuration and significantly recover the costs of a network refresh over the lifetime of the deployment.
