Network for Learning (N4L) has partnered with five private sector IT companies to upgrade schools’ Wi-Fi networks.
One of the largest IT projects in the country, Te Mana Tūhono (TMT, ‘the power of connectivity’) programme is being delivered on behalf of the Ministry of Education. The programme involves the design, procurement, replacement and support of Wi-Fi networks in schools and kura across the country.
“Our IT and Installer partners play a pivotal role in delivering new and upgrading existing products and services,” said N4L CEO, Larrie Moore. “They know the schools and they have worked hard to build the trust of principals over many years. Knowing we have a network of partners with long-standing relationships and a proven record of delivery makes us confident about delivering a world-class Wi-Fi service to schools and kura across the motu.”
The new agreements with TTS, MB3, Isometric Solutions, GoCloud and Entity Hub mean N4L now has partnerships with 15 IT companies and 17 companies focused on the installation of equipment. More at education.govt.nz/school/digital-technology/your-schools-ict-network/te-mana-tuhono/
