About The Blue Coat School
The Blue Coat School, Birmingham is a leading co-educational independent day school. Founded in 1722, the site occupies a beautiful site in Edgbaston, in 15 acres of playing fields and gardens. The school needed their IT Systems to be fast, safe and reliable across the campus.
The school operates from a number of buildings across a campus. Connecting these buildings together was an old, OM1 fibre deployment that was no longer fit for purpose.
This needed an overhaul to improve the site-wide network and provide the opportunity to deploy future services appropriately.
Taurus went to site to do extensive surveys, resulting in a report outlining the work required.
These recommendations were put into a proposal and we worked closely with the IT team in house to ensure they were within a set budget and provided suitable scalability and resilience for the Local Network deployment.
The Project Management team carefully co-ordinated a 3-week job over the summer holidays, working around other site projects over the same period of time. This was meticulously planned to ensure that there was no disruption to term time, exams, etc.
Our Structured Cabling specialists deployed all new fibre (nearly 5km in length!), cabinets and cabling equipment required for a complete end-to-end solution.
