Brewster Academy Deploys Aruba Wireless LAN With ClearPass To Accommodate Increasing Number Of Mobile Devices, Provide Secure Campus-Wide Coverage

Stocks in this article: ARUN

Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN), a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, today announced that Brewster Academy, an independent college preparatory school in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, is deploying a new Aruba wireless LAN (WLAN) with the AirWave Network Management System and the ClearPass Access Management System. The new, enterprise-grade 802.11n network is designed to enable Brewster Academy to accommodate the increasing number of smartphones, tablets and laptops being brought onto campus. It will also deliver secure, campus-wide wireless access to Brewster’s 358 students and 175 faculty and staff, as well as guests at the 80-acre property. Building upon Brewster’s reputation as a technology innovator, the WLAN is designed to give students access to all of their educational resources no matter where they are on campus, making the learning process more impactful and efficient.

Brewster Academy, which follows a curriculum based on best practice methodologies and focused on individual student learning, was the first educational institution to implement a 1:1 programming initiative when in 1993 it provided a laptop to each of its students. Today, Brewster pupils continue the tradition of marrying technology with an innovative, individualized educational curriculum by using the new Aruba WLAN and Apple MacBook Pro laptops to access applications such as Moodle, Google Apps for Education, custom wikis, curricular file servers and classroom management systems. Brewster is also using the WLAN to pilot new programs, including iPad and Apple TV testing programs.

Working with Adaptive Communications, a premier value-added reseller, designer and installer of enterprise data networking, enterprise storage and information security solutions, Brewster reviewed solutions from Xirrus, Juniper, Meru and Aerohive, before selecting Aruba. Aruba and Adaptive worked closely together to identify the academy’s needs and deliver a solution that met all of its requirements. Phase one of the new WLAN deployment, which includes 130 Aruba AP 105 wireless access points (APs), AirWave and ClearPass, is complete and delivers wireless access to all of the Academy’s academic areas, including classrooms and congregational areas. Phase two will add an additional 145 APs, delivering wireless coverage to 100% of the campus, including 20 residence halls, and is expected to be completed in July 2013.
