Talking Business can guide schools on the new guidance for ‘Bring your own device’ (BYOD) and security requirements for cloud computing, making sure your school is not in breach of new regulations. We can also guide you on SSL certification for websites and compliance with remote access to IT systems.
Talking Business work with a number of different manufacturers, in order to supply the best wireless solution to each individual school. We work with Fortinet, Huawei and Ubiquiti. All three have different strengths that allow us to cater for all requirements in the educational market. Our systems allow students to connect their own devices to the wireless network. This will allow the school to give secure internet access while actively monitoring students’ internet activity. This is an important aspect of the KCSIE regulations, as schools need to show that they are pro-actively monitoring internet access.
Talking Business has a range of phone systems that we can provide to schools, providing a highly tailored service at the best price. IP Phone system features are perfect for schools as they can now be integrated with SIMS and other CRM systems. This allows click and dial from screens with the system recognising when a parent or student calls in, opening their record on SIMS. Having worked with schools, Talking Business understands one of the biggest advantages is the ability to deploy SIP lines to replace ISDN. These are virtual lines that come through an internet. They can save schools between 50%-60% on line rental as well as lower call charges.
A leased line is a dedicated, fixed bandwidth data internet connectivity product capable of carrying large amounts of data (VPN or virtual private network traffic and phone calls). A leased line is a type of internet connectivity however, it’s not the same as the normal Fibre or ADSL connection. It is used for allowing devices to connect to the internet, carry out phone calls, enable staff within a business to remote access their office work (from their homes) and to link PC’s and servers in different corporate offices. Leased lines can also be used to link two locations together. An example of this could be linking a data centre and corporate office together.
