Steljes Limited has announced the launch of Steljes Networks, a specialist Wi-Fi and super-fast broadband provider for the education sector. Steljes Networks delivers enterprise-grade Wi-Fi to education sites, such as campuses and schools. This network-as-a-service (NaaS) is powered by Wifinity, a Wi-Fi Internet service provider active in the education, defence, retail and leisure markets.

Steljes Networks ensures reliable, flexible and scalable connectivity throughout the campus with full coverage and no black spots. The end-to-end, fully managed NaaS solution requires no large capital outlays for users and is billed on a monthly cycle.

The solution has been developed based on Steljes’ 27 years of experience in the education technology industry, specifically for use in education where the use of smart devices has increased dramatically. BESA, the trade association for education suppliers, has forecast a 200% rise in the presence of tablets in the classroom by the end of 2020.

“It is the lack of usable Wi-Fi infrastructure that is currently holding back the most effective use of smart devices. As a result, there is a requirement for efficient Wi-Fi. Steljes Networks provides the robust network infrastructure to deliver high speed, safe and reliable Internet access for students,” says Martin Large, CEO, Steljes.

“We’re delighted to have entered into this exclusive agreement with a company like Wifinity that is so well regarded in the industry, especially for its work with the likes of the Ministry of Defence.”

Aubone Tennant, managing director, Wifinity, says: “Steljes’ experience within the education sector will enable our Wi-Fi solution to make a real difference in the way that lessons are delivered in schools. We look forward to fostering a successful working relationship with Steljes.”
