About Us

At Strive Consultancy Solutions LTD, we aim to provide the best advice on enabling your wireless network as a proprietary network rather than a simple add on feature. With the explosion of the tablet market and with almost 50% of the UK households now owning at least 1 tablet device, wireless has never been more important. The latest technology generation has changed drastically over the years and businesses are now demanding resilient and robust wireless networks to cope with the overall demands.

Strive Consultancy Solutions Ltd is a pure breed Value Add Reseller with a focus on core networking, robust Wireless networking, whilst delivering cost predictability and a future proofed environment. With over 20 combined years’ experience in WiFi, networking and classroom management, we are the leading Xirrus Reseller in the UK. With over 200 installations completed since 2013, we specialise in site wide coverage and high user density deployments. Our other key focus areas is that of Classroom management, Secure web filtering and AV, with more clients choosing Strive as an extension to the business on a regular basis.

Our clients are our life line and we ensure all of our customers are provided the very best solution possible. Some of our installations have over 15000 wireless connections daily without any issues. As part of our offerings we also have a full managed service division available to all of our clients which allows for additional support when required. When installing Wireless networks, it essential to understand that not all client devices are created equal. Laptops, tablets and mobile phones connect and engage with a wireless network in different ways. As such without the appropriate level of planning, regardless of the solution, things can go wrong.

As of October the 1st 2013 we are delighted to announce our formal release of our NEW Managed Service program, exclusively for Xirrus Wireless clients. This document outlines the Managed service offering and what is on offer to all of our clients looking to take on the solution. Having invested heavily into our Managed Service division, our Mantra is simple, that Strive becomes an extension to your IT department, and aids in the development of the overall mobility strategy for the next 3 years.
For the past year we have been testing our managed Service with a Heavy usage College with 2000 WiFi connections daily, and are delighted to announce a 100% success rate to fix on failure within a 4 hour window. For the past 15 months the testing has proven itself and as a result, Strive are pleased to provide our service to our client base.
