The School wishes to award a contract for the necessary upgrading of the current school network and the provision of a wireless solution to provide the infrastructure to maximise the opportunities generated by mobile technology in the classroom.

The solution proposed will be based on an output based specification the end result of the proposal is to provide adequate throughput bandwidth that provides continuous mobile device connected experience for multiple connected users, 30+ per classroom at multiple locations up to a total of 800 devices. Along with the proposed wireless solution the appointed supplier will be required to review and propose an upgrade to the Schools existing server hardware infrastructure as such so that the additional throughput of wireless connectivity does not compromise the Schools existing Internet performance.

Suppliers should be made aware that if they are shortlisted to the Invitation to Tender stage they will be required to attend a site visit on 30th July 2013 to review the existing School infrastructure and view the classroom layouts. Dates and times will be made firm in the Invitation to Tender.

Suppliers should also be made aware that it is envisaged that the proposed solution will be awarded on 14th August 2013. Work can start on-site 15th August 2013 to ensure minimum disruption, however the School is aware that this may carry over into September.

Further and more detailed information will be contained in the Invitation to Tender documentation, which will be issued subsequently to qualified applicants.
