Arcadia University Deploys Campus-wide Wireless LAN, Enables BYOD With Aruba Networks

Stocks in this article: ARUN

Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN) today announced that Arcadia University, a Philadelphia-based global university and pioneer in international education, has implemented an Aruba Networks wireless LAN to deliver campus-wide access to the institution’s students, staff, faculty and guests. Working with integrator Comm Solutions Company of Malvern, PA, Arcadia has deployed the new WLAN to improve coverage, reliability and performance across the university’s academic buildings, residence halls and outdoor areas. The University is also expanding its bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy, allowing students, staff and faculty to connect to the network with their own personal devices.

Arcadia is a top-ranked, private co-educational university offering bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees to more than 4,000 students from among 80 fields of study. Arcadia is recognized as a leader in study-abroad programs and international education and maintains educational centers and offices in more than 20 countries.

Prior to installing the Aruba WLAN, Arcadia had experienced problems with its existing wireless network including spotty, unreliable coverage, particularly in some residence halls and academic buildings wherein connections were frequently dropped. In addition, Arcadia hoped to extend wireless coverage to a brand new campus building called the Commons, where students congregate and many of the executive offices are housed. The Commons also includes a state-of-the-art Great Room with seating and capacity for approximately 500 people. Finally, Arcadia wanted to expand its outdoor wireless footprint to cover the main campus.

“It was crucial for us to build a wireless network that could address the needs of our entire population of students, faculty, staff and administrators,” said Steven Alter, Vice-President and CIO, Arcadia University. “Working with Comm Solutions and Aruba Networks, we were able to design a wireless network that increased both coverage and reliability across campus. We’ve expanded our outdoor footprint so that the main campus footprint has wireless coverage and simultaneously, we’ve experienced 100 percent up-time on the network since deploying in mid-January.”
