Inbox Business Technologies signed an agreement with Government of Punjab for setting up computer labs in 1,111 higher secondary schools in Punjab. Under this program a total of around 4,200 labs will be set up by Government of Punjab in schools and will by far be one of the biggest IT initiatives taken by Government in education sector.

This turnkey solution signed between Inbox and the Government of Punjab covers supply, installation and after sales services for all 1,111 IT Labs. Inbox, being an Executive Partner of Acer will be providing and installing Acer Altos G330 Servers and Acer Veriton M670 Desktops. In addition to servers and desktops, thin client computing is being used to maximize the number of terminals in labs. In this regard, nComputing Technology which offers features specific to education sector is being used. This innovative combination of thin and thick client computing will save millions of rupees and yet make available computers to students studying in Government schools.

The software being used by Inbox in these labs will comprise Microsoft products such as Windows Server 2008, Forefront Security, Windows Terminal Services Client Access License (CAL), and Office 2007 Professional.

The Punjab IT Labs project was initiated by Government of Punjab last year and is expected to be completed by end of 2009 covering 4,200 higher secondary schools across Punjab. The Government believes that this project will be the most significant step toward bridging the information and technology divide between public and private sector education.

Speaking on this occasion, Faraz Siddiqui, Group Head for Infrastructure business said “These school labs will go a long way in integrating technology with conventional mode of teaching, and Inbox is ready to play its role. A project of this magnitude is always challenging but with Punjab Government’s progressive outlook, a supportive network of Punjab Education & IT department staff, and competent & effective Inbox project team – I am confident of completing this project with flying colors.”
