Quinnipiac University Upgrades Network With Aruba MOVE Architecture To Ensure Reliable, Secure Network Access Across Multiple Campuses

Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN), a leading provider of next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, today announced that Quinnipiac University, a private co-educational university in Hamden, Conn., is deploying a new unified access network based on the Aruba Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture.

The University, which is consistently ranked among the best regional universities by U.S. News & World Reports, selected the Aruba MOVE architecture to deliver robust, reliable and secure network access to all students, staff and faculty across its three campuses in the Hamden area. The new infrastructure is designed to accommodate the significant increase in users, mobile devices and applications accessing the network and provide the University’s Information Technology department with comprehensive visibility and control of both wired and wireless network resources.

Quinnipiac will also leverage the MOVE architecture at its new state-of-the-art Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, which is scheduled to open in March 2013 for faculty and staff and in August for students. In a first for medical school facilities, the University is building its new School of Medicine from the ground up with pervasive wireless LAN (WLAN) technology. The building’s technology infrastructure will enable the faculty to leverage wireless in every facet of teaching, including videoconferencing, video streaming and lecture capture. Students also will be able to access scanned images in the gross anatomy lab.

In addition to upgrading its WLAN to 802.11n, Quinnipiac is replacing 250 legacy Cisco access switches with Aruba S3500 Mobility Access Switches to support the increase in users, devices and applications at the University. The Aruba S3500 switches will make network operations more efficient by enabling the identification of individual users on the wired network along with their roles, devices and applications, while providing users with seamless connectivity.

The new unified access network will also include eight M3 Series Mobility Controllers and one 3200 Series Mobility Controller, nearly 2,000 AP-125 and AP-135 access points (APs) and the Aruba AirWave network management system. AirWave was a key factor in selecting the Aruba solution because it uses a user-centric approach to identify who is on the network, where they are accessing the network, which mobile devices they are using and how much bandwidth is being consumed by specific devices. These capabilities were an important feature for Quinnipiac because many of its 6,200 undergraduate and 2,300 graduate students visit at least two of the University’s three campuses daily.
