SysGroup were invited to look at Priory School’s infrastructure as their previous wired and wireless network was unreliable and not able to cope with modern demands. The school had a D-Link Network with poor structure and little management capability.


After a complete survey of the existing network, SysGroup proposed a solution including:

  • A new network to allow for greater control and cope with user demands
  • Fully-designed VLAN and IP Schema
  • Migration plan which involved installing a Cisco 4 X 3750X stack layer 3 core connecter to the server infrastructure
  • Cisco 3750X core connecting fibre to 17 Cisco Meraki switches and 50 Cisco Meraki access points
  • 5 series WatchGuard firewall for web security
  • IPS/AV/APT Blocker


The school now has:

  • A robust, secure infrastructure to cope with wireless demands
  • Full availability during evenings and holiday periods
  • Entire system monitored securely from SysGroup's Telford data centres


With SysGroup, I ended up with a complete plan and roadmap. I’d recommend SysGroup as they understand, listen and care about what they do passionately. I also found them really professional.
