Malvern St James School, a leading boarding and day school for girls aged 4-18, sought a solution to improve connectivity across their buildings. The existing ADSL VPN technology was not meeting their needs, hindering the studies of their 400+ students. After encountering difficulties with two other companies, Malvern St James turned to MPR TS, who proposed implementing a point-to-point wireless network bridge. This case study explores how this innovative solution revolutionised connectivity at Malvern St James School.


Malvern St James School desired a more streamlined solution for connecting their buildings together. The existing ADSL VPN technology failed to provide satisfactory connectivity for the students. The school approached two other companies for assistance, both of which were unable to offer a viable solution. One company deemed the project impossible, while the other suggested an expensive installation of a fibre connection. Malvern St James needed a cost-effective and efficient alternative.


MPR TS conducted a short survey across multiple sites in the town and determined that a point-to-point wireless network bridge was a feasible and cost-effective solution. This wireless hardware offered a fast and strong 300 Mbps bi-directional connection to each of the four targets around the town. The installation process was quick and efficient, taking only a matter of hours. MPR TS’s expertise in wireless technology made it possible to deliver a solution that surpassed the capabilities of the existing ADSL VPN technology.


The implementation of the point-to-point wireless network bridge at Malvern St. James School brought about several key benefits:

1. Improved Connectivity: The wireless bridge provided a much-needed upgrade to the school’s connectivity. With a fast and reliable 300 Mbps bi-directional connection, students and teachers now have seamless internet access within classrooms and halls. This enhanced connectivity allows for more efficient and effective learning experiences.

2. Cost-Effectiveness: MPR TS’s solution proved to be highly cost-effective compared to the alternatives. The installation of a fiber connection, as suggested by one of the previous companies, would have involved a significant expense. In contrast, the wireless bridge offered a more affordable option without compromising on performance.

3. Quick and Easy Installation: The installation process for the point-to-point wireless network bridge was completed within a matter of hours. This minimised disruption to the school’s operations and ensured a swift implementation. MPR TS’s expertise in wireless technology enabled a seamless installation process.

4. Integration with Other Systems: The wireless bridge is seamlessly integrated with other systems at Malvern St James School. A fully installed VoIP phone system, along with the sharing of the main school’s 100 Mbps leased line internet connection, has further enhanced communication and connectivity throughout the campus.


The implementation of a point-to-point wireless network bridge at Malvern St James School has revolutionised connectivity for students and staff. MPR TS’s innovative solution provided improved internet access, cost-effectiveness, quick installation, and seamless integration with existing systems. This case study highlights the benefits of a point-to-point wireless network bridge for educational institutions in need of enhanced connectivity. By choosing MPR TS as its Technical Services Integrator, Malvern St. James School was able to meet its connectivity needs and provide a more efficient learning environment for its students.
