Wireless Solution

Sometimes you see something that makes you smile and you just have to pull up, hold up the traffic on the round-about and take a photo.

This was one of those times - driving past Tamaki College and I saw the big aerial going up on the roof for the wireless connection to Pt England School.  For someone like me, who needs to see something to believe it, this was a big moment.  Yes, this wireless connection between our schools is really happening. Thanks to the team from Fusion Networks.  This is a big project they are giving their time and energy to.

So I went round the round-about again and got myself into position to take my pics - and because this is Glen Innes, the traffic just waited :)  The next visible sign of progress is seeing the network pop up on my mobile devices as I drive around the district - and No, I am not about to reveal the password! But TLN is the Tamaki Learning Network...


  1. Mrs. Burt,

    I commented on one of your previous posts. I think its neat that you were able to witness the beginning of wireless connection between the two schools in person. I know this will make a big difference in the social networking for the students and I am glad it is actually taking place.

    Thank you for sharing,

  2. I'm not so sure about this whole wireless technology.


  3. @Allanah That is very funny - and it was our wireless team (Fusion Networks) who showed it to me first. @Tara Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts. It really is very cool to have a bunch of schools who are prepared to share their internet, to think outside the box about sharing the ownership of firewall groups, and even to share the expertise of their teachers. Networking - whether online or offline, for work or socially- really does make life easier.
