The Next Generation Network and the Framework Approach

Net-Ctrl, joined by RUCKUS Networks and Everything ICT, explore the future demands of the next generation network, and possible procurement routes via Education aligned framework providers.

Richard Leadbetter, UK Education Lead, and Deep Johal, Systems Engineer at RUCKUS Networks, will be looking at:

  •  Reducing the network burden – How AI can enhance operations and troubleshoot issues to reduce the network burden on IT staff
  • The Next Generation Network – A look at what things schools should be looking at from a wired perspective to prepare for the next generation of devices (e.g.  WIFI7 access-points).
  • Wi-Fi 7: What it is, the use-case, and where it should sit in your future Wi-Fi plans.

Followed by Oliver Pearson, Director at Everything ICT (EICT), who will be discussing the benefits of using procurement frameworks, and how they can:


  • Simplify and streamline your procurement processes
  • Provide compliance assurance
  • Reduce time and resource on procurement
  • Ensure competitive pricing
