What NS Optimum provided
NS Optimum have been very proud to be associated with The Piggott School’s ICT network for in excess of 6 years. The NS Optimum computer network at the Piggott School has grown in that time to some 9 Servers, 500 desktop workstations and 150 laptops on a school wide wireless network system. We have also provided the school with Audio Visual systems to most classrooms consisting of interactive
whiteboards with fixed projectors as a testament to the school’s vision of a 21st century teaching environment.

The ICT network is a locked down classroom friendly system incorporating active directory control and group policies to insure the smooth running of the network and desktop security against tampering. The network also incorporates the administration network segregated using windows server control enhanced by switch based VLANs.

The Piggott School

"We at the Piggott School have been using NS Optimum as our main supplier of computer and AV equipment for several years. They have helped our network grow from a humble Windows 98 system with 200 client machines to a network consisting of 9 servers and over 500 clients. The initial assistance with setting up our Windows 2003 infrastructure was invaluable and has lead us to implementing our own Thin Client system, VPN and hosting our own websites."

"Despite how hard we have tried they have as yet been unbeatable on value for money and their sales staff has proved very well informed about the latest products and services available."

- Mr James Fisher (Network Manager)
