Aruba’s mobile first, cloud first approach addresses the fundamental change in today’s education environment. The move towards a digital classroom and the adoption of big data to better improve education outcomes.

Aruba enables schools to build reliable networks to keep up with the fast pace of change by migrating away from the expensive to operate propriety infrastructure, which was originally designed for fixed network connections.

    Al Kingsley, Group Managing Director, NetSupport Limited

  • ANME meetings provide valuable networking - being able to talk to other professionals doing the same role and understanding their approach and their context. This is a great way to challenge what you are doing in your own setting.
