Data networks for schools in Portugal

Portugal

In 2007, the "Parque Escolar" programme was launched in Portugal. The aim of this programme is to renovate all the country’s schools and to equip the buildings with new technology, including Internet connections in every classroom. Within the framework of the third phase of the programme, Datwyler supplied, via local partner Policabos, the data network technology for the Emídio Garcia school in Bragança and the Dr. César Augusto da Silva Ferreira School in Rio Maior. In both buildings a Class E cabling system was installed. Significant factors that influenced the award of the contract were the high quality of the Datwyler solution and long-term system warranty.
