UAE University goes wireless with Avaya
Avaya has completed phase one of United Arab Emirates (UAE) University's wireless network. The first phase of the project was implemented in four weeks and will see an initial 1,000 students of UAE University's 17,000 strong student body logging onto the new wireless network, through out its Maqam 5 hostel and various academic campuses including libraries.
The first phase has seen the installation of 140 of Avaya's industry leading Wireless AP-3 access points, which delivers 10,000 square meters of connectivity and has the capacity to handle up to 30,000 users.
The new wireless solution will allow students access to e-libraries, video conferencing, on-line courses, web-based classes, course material and more from anywhere on the campus. Whether it is in a student's accommodation, the classroom or outdoors.
The new wireless network runs 2.4 Ghz over 11Mb. However Avaya's Wireless AP-3 access point enables users to make the seamless transition to the soon to be internationally ratified 5 Ghz network solution which runs over 54 Mb. — (menareport.com)
