Over 330 Estonian schools got a fast internet connection
A project covering the entire Estonian school network was successfully completed at the end of last week. During the project, Datel's ICT department delivered and installed local area network devices for over 300 schools.
More than 8,000 different local area network devices were installed during the project, and more than two million meters of cables were laid. The majority of local area networks are managed locally, but the central administration system also allows all school LANs to be administered centrally. With nearly 5,500 Wi-Fi base stations, this makes the network the largest of its kind in Northern Europe.
