Multi-Academy Trusts exist to advance education in their group of schools. This approach provides a host of benefits to individual schools as they share and implement the latest best practice.
Virtue Technologies are recognised as innovators in our industry. We work hard to ensure that educational outcomes are complemented, not driven, by technology. We work with each trust to understand all of the challenges and issues they face and create practical, bespoke Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions.
The services we offer support the evolving ICT requirements across all of the establishments in the trust, providing consistent services and tools for increased collaboration whilst also reducing costs.
The benefits of this joined-up approach include:
- All users have the same experience regardless of location
- Barriers to collaboration are removed
- Improved disaster recovery
- Ability to manage a scaled user base over multiple sites
- Centralised data gathering and reporting
- Cost savings
Private Wide Area Network (PWAN)
Virtue Technologies can keep all of the individual schools in your trust connected, with our reliable Private Wide Area Network.
Our PWAN turns internet connections into true private circuits without the use of complicated VPNs.
We do this by building a dedicated private core network for a school. The whole network is then protected by a dedicated firewall which we customise to each school’s specific requirements.
A PWAN provides a collection of schools such as a secondary and its associated feeder primary schools, with a private network with absolute security.
As our PWAN has been designed to work across all of their connectivity solutions, we’re able to connect a primary school with a high-speed Ethernet over Fibre to the Cabinet (EoFTTC) connection to a secondary school with a leased line.
