ASP Portal


What is iSchool ASP Portal?

While the iSchool Management Systems would contain the bulk of administrative database of a school, access to the respective information is targeted for school administrators, teachers and principals. Most of the iSchool SMS servers are located at the individual schools, where the access is mostly Intranet base, and access by users within the school campus.

The iSchool Management Systems is a web-based application, and is accessible if the server is configured with proper link to high-speed Internet link, with proper firewall configurations and security protection.

However, the infrastructure for the Internet within most schools are usually an ADSL broadband line, where the downstream speed is usually 1 Mega Bit, and is good enough only for limited access to the Internet by users in the school. However, for the iSchool Management Systems to be access from outside of the school, the uplink bandwidth is usually 384 kB, which would not be sufficient for access from users outside of the school.

The iSchool ASP Portal is specially designed for schools that want to provide school information access for parents and students from home. We will provide uploading utilities for you to synchronise the student information from the iSchool Management System to the iSchool ASP Portal, so that they can be access from our data centre by parents and students from home.
