Liberty University (LU), the world's largest Christian university, is executing one of the most progressive mobility strategies in the education space by transitioning voice and broadcast television services to their wireless LAN. Their challenges are they need seamless integration with network access control, reliable data, voice and broadcast television over adaptive 802.11n Wi-Fi, mobile security with firewall-based policy enforcement per user and consistent mobile network access for all users and students. They chose Aruba Networks to overcome these challenges. They have implemented 3600 and 6000 Mobility Controllers, M3 Controller Modules, AP-125 802.11n Access Points and AirWave Wireless Management Suite. The results of implementing the Aruba Networks were optimized video delivery infrastructure that leverages 802.11n everywhere possible and minimizes reliance on expensive coaxial and Ethernet cabling plants.
