3Com will upgrade the department's network for the territory's 187 schools, which house 43,000 students and 5000 staff.

The vendor will supply products from its H3C network family including switches, schools in a box (router, voice, wireless, 3G and data connectivity in one device), wireless controllers and access points as well as an intelligent management centre to oversee network infrastructure.

The contract also includes maintenance for each of the schools and training of staff at Alice Springs, Katherine, Nhulunbuy and Darwin.

"3Com has gained a reputation among education and government institutions for offering the most high-performing, resilient and secure networking infrastructures in the business at the best possible value," Angela Hughes, country manager for 3Com Australia and New Zealand said in a statement.
