Somerset College, located on Queensland, Australia's Gold Coast, is a co-educational, independent, inter-denominational school catering for student s from Pre-Prep to Year 12. With a large and diverse student population of approximately 1500, together with the introduction of a BYOD program, Somerset College needed to provide a network with exceptional performance, security and privacy measures that could support the different access needs of students, staff and guest users.



  • High-performance, reliable, responsive network
  • Automated BYOD access and security policy compliance
  • Reporting and analytics on network performance
"Now, with Extreme we have visibility on every aspect of the network, allowing us to drill down to quickly identify, isolate and resolve any issues. It makes my job a lot easier when I can see what?s happening per port, per device from a single pane of glass. It gives us a lot of confidence in knowing what?s up, and saves us hours in diagnosing any connectivity or performance issues with users or devices."
