Campus Wi-Fi has to constantly evolve to support the changes in the classroom and the devices our students are using. For almost 8 years now, SecurEdge has been a critical resource to help us keep up with our changing needs.
Chowan University is located in Mufreesboro, NC and is the second oldest Baptist College in the state. A highly respected University, Chowan believes Wi-Fi is a critical service that must be in place to support learning functions, student life and activities, as well as the needs of their faculty and staff. Over the last 8 years, Chowan has seen the demand to provide wireless coverage on campus increase exponentially. In an effort to support 3-5 Wi-Fi connected devices per student, online testing platforms and multimedia delivered over wireless, Chowan University choose SecurEdge to design, deploy and support a complete secure mobility solution. Challenges:
SecurEdge began working with Chowan University in 2007 to help design Wi-Fi on campus. The original system designed was built on Aruba Networks' Controller Based platform to support the academic buildings and dorms. Over the years, the design and implementation has been adjusted to incorporate the increases in capacity needed to support the large number of devices per student they required. As technology changes, SecurEdge has worked with the college to help adjust their strategy to reflect the latest standards to fit their needs and budget requirements. Our Solution:
Chowan over the last 7 years has been able to scale appropriately to the ever-changing higher education environment, both quickly and without down-time. With the knowledge that their network is ready for today and for what lies ahead, Chowan and it's many students, faculty and visitors are enjoying a true mobility experience. Results:
