About Project


In a world where technology and education are increasingly intertwined, the need for modernized learning spaces has never been more critical. A recent project undertaken for a school computer lab embodies this shift towards a tech-savvy educational environment. By mounting 22 iMac computers, installing 48 CAT6 cables, a wireless access point, 6-strand OM3 multimode fiber, and a Smart Board TV, this upgrade not only modernizes the classroom but also significantly enhances the learning experience for students.

The Revolutionary Upgrade

Mounting 22 iMac Computers

The decision to wall-mount 22 iMac computers has transformed the computer lab into a sleek, space-efficient, and more interactive learning environment. This setup not only saves valuable desk space but also provides an aesthetically pleasing and organized setting that encourages students to engage with their lessons more enthusiastically.

Installing 48 CAT6 Cables

The installation of 48 CAT6 cables has laid the foundation for a high-speed, reliable network infrastructure within the classroom. These cables are designed to handle gigabit speeds, ensuring that students can access online resources, cloud-based learning tools, and educational software without lag, promoting a seamless and interactive learning experience.

Wireless Access Point Installation

By installing a wireless access point, the project has ensured that the computer lab benefits from wireless connectivity, providing flexibility and ease of access for both students and teachers. This addition supports the use of mobile devices in learning, enabling a more dynamic and interactive classroom where educational resources are readily accessible.

6-Strand OM3 Multimode Fiber

The integration of a 6-strand OM3 multimode fiber from the nearest Intermediate Distribution Frame (IDF) to the computer lab is a game-changer. This high-speed fiber optic connection significantly increases the data transmission capacity, supporting the simultaneous use of high-bandwidth applications across the network. This upgrade ensures that the lab’s infrastructure is future-proofed, ready to support emerging technologies and educational practices.

Smart Board TV Installation

The installation of a Smart Board TV introduces an interactive element to the classroom that traditional blackboards and even standard whiteboards cannot match. This technology fosters a more engaging and collaborative learning environment, allowing students to interact with digital content, participate in interactive lessons, and collaborate in real-time.

Benefits of the Upgrade

The comprehensive upgrade to the school’s computer lab offers numerous benefits, including:

Enhanced Learning Experience: The integration of modern technology into the classroom environment enriches the learning experience, making education more engaging, interactive, and effective.

Preparation for the Future: By familiarizing students with current technology, the school prepares them for future academic and professional environments that will demand tech-savviness.

Increased Accessibility: The project’s focus on connectivity—both wired and wireless—ensures that educational resources are more accessible to students, facilitating a more inclusive learning environment.

Collaborative Learning: The Smart Board TV and the overall technological infrastructure support collaborative learning, encouraging students to work together, share ideas, and improve their communication skills.


The recent upgrade to the school computer lab represents a significant leap forward in the integration of technology into educational spaces. By incorporating cutting-edge technology such as iMac computers, CAT6 cables, a wireless access point, OM3 fiber, and a Smart Board TV, the project not only enhances the learning environment but also sets a new standard for educational institutions aiming to prepare their students for a technologically advanced future. This initiative underscores the crucial role of modern infrastructure in shaping the educational experiences of tomorrow’s leaders.

As Apex Network Systems looks to the future, we remain dedicated to leveraging technology to transform educational environments, ensuring that students and educators have access to the tools and resources they need to thrive in an increasingly digital world. This project is a testament to our vision of a world where technology and education go hand in hand, creating limitless possibilities for learners everywhere.
