The Ministry of Education has released the revised ICT Cabling Infrastructure Policy and Standards for schools

It is important when making changes to schools’ internal networks that they meet recognised Standards for Information and Communications Technology (ICT).  This applies to ICT cabling, switches and servers, and wireless access points in all new buildings, or alterations and additions to existing infrastructure.

In order to protect the investment in learning infrastructure, schools, designers, and installers must ensure that when upgrading, developing or altering a school’s ICT infrastructure that all ICT work is carried out in accordance with Regulations, Codes of Practice, and Standards, such as those outlined in ICT Cabling Infrastructure: Policy and Standards for Schools version 4.0 [PDF; 488kb].

The Ministry ICT Standards for network upgrades are listed below.

Standards for Network Upgrades

The upgrade has had a massive impact on the reliability and capability of our network. Being able to depend on quality of the install has eliminated one of the many ­variables involved in maintaining a successful network. Torque IP has done a superb job, which places our ­students at the ­cutting edge of technology.
