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

When reviewing WLAN solutions, Brewster Academy’s IT department wanted a comprehensive system that allowed easy and efficient management and troubleshooting of the network as well as secure, differentiated access for students, faculty, staff and guests. The academy also wanted to allow its users to register their own mobile devices. Aruba’s AirWave allows Brewster’s IT department to identify who is on the network, where they are accessing the network, the mobile devices they are using and how much bandwidth is being consumed by specific devices. Aruba’s ClearPass enables the academy to securely onboard any device onto the network. By centralizing access policies across the entire network, ClearPass ensures that each user has the right access privileges based on who they are and what device they’re using.

Brewster Academy is a long-time, ardent believer in using technology to enhance student learning and improve institution efficiency. “Having introduced computers into our curriculum twenty years ago, we believe Brewster Academy has more experience with integrating technology than any other secondary school in the United States. Accordingly, we were very deliberate in selecting the Aruba WLAN solution,” said Eileen Taylor, Manager of Information Technology for Brewster Academy. “We wanted a wireless solution that would give us reliability, manageability and scale. Aruba’s solution gives us all of that plus the ability to securely control access to the network and monitor how it is being used. Our new Aruba WLAN benefits students and faculty and enhances the overall Brewster Academy experience.”

“Brewster Academy is an outstanding example of how academic institutions can use wireless LAN technology to expand learning beyond the classroom walls and enable and encourage students to learn in new ways,” said Gerry Festa, Director, Industry Solutions Marketing for Aruba Networks. “With the new Aruba WLAN, Brewster Academy’s faculty, staff and students are more mobile and flexible and the overall learning environment is more dynamic.”
