Wifi Hotspot Solution for Single & Multi-Location University Campuses

Can Wi-Fi make you smarter?

College students seems to think so. Nearly 75% of the students who took part in a recent poll said Wi-Fi access on their college campuses helps them get better grades.

With the increasing demand for internet access in educational campuses due to evolving standard of education and flexibility offered by the Internet – universities, colleges, educational institutes etc., are keenly stepping forward to setup secured and stable wired or Wi-Fi network campus for their students. As per the current market trend, most of the students like to carry 3-4 devices with them like mobile, tablets, laptops, ipods etc. with them to campus. As these devices devour bandwidth, colleges and universities are struggling hard to keep up with the bandwidth demand.

Wifi connections are much freer than wired as it allows immediate access to an unlimited range of resources from anywhere in the school. This, in turn, enables educators to employ new educational practices as access becomes a given. Teachers and other members of staff are open to becoming more creative in the way that they teach, and the resources that they use in the classroom.

Wifi isn’t just about information however, it’s also about communication. Having Wifi within a school instantly opens new communication barriers in a myriad of different ways. Students are able to communicate with each other, with their teachers and other members of staff and in cases of crisis, with their family members at home. Opening the doors to further communication is helpful not only for education purposes but also offers another route for students to voice any concerns they have at school from a pastoral care perspective.

Educational campuses have major requirements of user access control, control over bandwidth consumption, and differentiated policy control for management faculty’s access and student’s access. These campuses with wired and wireless internet access require seamlessly roaming facility to access internet from class room to library to labs and residential areas. Laying complete network with different vendor solution would be very costly effort and difficult to manage while technical issues. Education institutes require cost-efficient comprehensive solution that offers all the advance facilities and features in single platform with single point of contact for technical support.
