HP Case Study – Ballarat Grammar

thm_ballarat_grammerHewlett Packard have just release a Case Study on the hard work that we’ve done over the last year or two with them, and our HP reseller Trident. Check it out here.

The Case Study explains some of the challenges that we had with our previous network, servers and workstations, and how HP and Trident helped us find a solution that would help us overcome these challenges.

As well as the HP Case Study, earlier this year HP ProCurve released a Case Study on our migration from Cisco/Alloy switches to ProCurve, Wireless Edge Services and 802.1x port security. The Press Release Foundersis here on CIO. With a lot of help from Lisa and Fotios we’ve been able to develop our network, provide a 10Gb fibre backbone and much improved services for Staff and Students, including our Boarders on the wireless network, using the Wireless Edge Services Module (WESM). Expect to see some How-To’s posted soon on some of the funky things that we setup with our HP gear, especially the 802.1x, the WESM and our guest wireless network.

All of the work discussed in these case studies is obviously a team effort, and wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and planning from Des, Nathan B, Nathan H, Leon and Rian.
