Kean University Implements Advanced Border-To-Border Wireless Network Across 150-Acre Campus
Kean University has grown to become one of New Jersey's largest institutions of higher learning. Their challenges are they need to implement an indoor/outdoor wireless network, cultivate a campus where communications are easy, encompassing mobile phones, lap tops, MP3 players and eReaders, install a solution that is scalable and centrally manageable by limited staff and ensure dynamic RF management to reduce interference. They chose Juniper Networks to overcome these challenges. They implemented WLC2800 Wireless LAN Controller, WLC200 Wireless LAN Controller, WLA432 Wireless LAN Access Point, WLA82 Wireless LAN Access, WLA632 Wireless LAN Access Point, WLM1200 Management Appliance and SmartPass. The results of implementing the Juniper Networks were border-to-border, campus-wide wireless supporting more than 15,000 students, secure, reliable connectivity throughout the campus and future-proofed for 802.11n.
