Bringing rigorous British education to Thailand
King’s Bangkok seeks to mirror the achievements of King’s College School, Wimbledon, one of the most academically successful schools in the world. With about 1,000 students and growing fast, King’s Bangkok uses the latest educational methods and technologies to nurture the talent of local Thai and international pre-nursery through Year 13 students.
A secure, reliable, and flexible campus network is a prerequisite. With the network running smoothly in the background, the focus stays on learning, co-curricular activities, and students’ well-being as the school grows and learning evolves.
“It’s important for us to have a network solution that’s future-proof and will support the latest advancements in technologies in the coming years,” says Dion Norman, director of information communication technology at King’s College International Bangkok.
Safeguarding children is paramount, and King’s Bangkok counts on a highly secure network to uphold data privacy.
A predictable, reliable, and measurable campus network
To deliver on its commitment to a student-centered, value-led curriculum that inspires students, King’s Bangkok partnered with Juniper to build an AI-driven campus network that enables engaging digital learning experiences.
“Juniper delivers an integrated AI-driven network solution that optimizes user experiences and simplifies operations across the network,” says Norman.
King’s Bangkok can count on predictable, reliable, and measurable connectivity. Juniper Mist Wi-Fi Assurance and Wired Assurance cloud services, powered by AI and machine learning, automate troubleshooting and provide insight into real-time user experiences.
Wi-Fi is readily available indoors and outdoors, from the school’s modern classrooms and 625-seat auditorium to its open-air amphitheater and sports complex with an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
A highly secure network helps King’s Bangkok comply with international data privacy laws such as Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as Thailand’s upcoming Personal Data Protection Act. Juniper’s SRX Series next-generation firewall protects the school against cyberattacks and intrusions.
Inspiring students to shine brighter and go further
King’s Bangkok engages students with top-notch academics and experiences to foster a love of learning. As the school expands to serve 1,500 students, it can count on an agile, future-proof network infrastructure as new technologies like virtual reality are woven into students’ studies.
“Over the next couple of years, we anticipate that the school will continue to grow as we add students and open our new state-of-the-art senior school building,” says Norman. “We are confident that Juniper has helped us build a scalable network that will only continue to create superior digital learning experiences for Thailand’s brightest minds.”
