First Steps

For any school that is considering taking its first step into the IT World, installing a computer network with PCs in each classroom or a computer room it is important to get the right advise.

Due to our involvement on a voluntary basis with our local schools, CBI is very conscious of the funding issues that schools and colleges throughout Ireland continue to face.

For a Primary School that is considering taking its first step into the IT World, installing a computer network with PCs in each classroom or a computer room it is important to get the right advice - without this basic ingredient, monies are always wasted.

When designing a computer room it is important that the worktops are the right height off the floor with sufficient space between each PC. If you cannot afford, at this time, to populate the room with PCs, the design of the room (wiring etc) and the network should allow for ease of expansion at a later date.

We believe that putting a standard network together is easy; the hard part is to design the network such that it is resilient and easy to use for the non-IT person.

Not many schools and colleges can afford the luxury of employing a dedicated IT Administrator, so a CBI designed network is easy for a non-IT person to maintain - recovery procedures are simple and well documented, and we ensure that this person is comfortable with all aspects of the system before we hand over the network.

If you have an existing network that is not reliable, let us do a site audit with the view to making recommendations towards how to make it more resilient. If a system has been badly designed or maintained, replacing the hardware will only give a short term respite, and therefore will not be money well spent.

Computer Labs

CBI's considerable experience in providing computer lab facilities to schools and educational establishments in both a voluntary and professional capacity means that we are well placed to design, supply, configure and support the ideal computer room for your school or college.

Over the years we have learned the importance of robustness, ease of maintenance, and ease of recovery to school staff members responsible for network administration. We are constantly seeking new software solutions which will make the life of the college network administrator easier
