Wapping High School

Wapping High School is a London-based free school founded in 2009. Currently educating 120 pupils - with a target of 420 in the next few years - Wapping's mission is to prepare students for life at university (and beyond) with a learning method that emphasises digital infrastructure and technology. Because of this IT-heavy approach, the institution required a network that could handle their staff and student's (often bandwidth-heavy) applications with minimal downtime. Luminet's independent Fibre-Air was installed to meet this requirement, working initially as a primary connection, and later (when the fibre connection was installed) as a secondary failover link.
