Plymouth School of Creative Arts (PSCA – www.schoolofcreativearts.co.uk) is a new school of arts based in Plymouth.
It is sponsored by Plymouth College of Art. Its aim is to secure academic excellence in all subjects through a similar approach to learning as that used in the college to develop the arts and creativity.
Being a school of arts they wanted to use equipment that was synonymous with creativity i.e. Apple.
This posed certain problems as, from an infrastructure perspective, they were fully Microsoft-based, whilst connectivity (aside from core infrastructure) was wireless based on Ruckus wireless architecture.
PSCA were also in temporary premises as their brand new building was being constructed nearby.
Whatever solution we were to install, it needed to scale.
