Huawei is helping Calicut University deploy a campus Wi-Fi solution to provide free high speed Wi-Fi connectivity to users in the campus.
With this deployment, Calicut University will acquire the status of complete Wi-Fi enabled University, making it the first e-enabled University in Kerala.
The Wi-Fi system will use a new generation of antenna for indoor AP. It will feature new WLAN chip technology, indoor distributed access point for uniform radio coverage, exclusive local forwarding to resolve bandwidth and security issues and user-friendly engineering design to improve the efficiency of device installation, Huawei said.
The Huawei Campus Wi-Fi solution supports the integration of both wired and wireless networks. The Batch configuration consists of up to 200 access points and centralized Access Controller supporting about 10,000 users on a single Policy Center Server having capacity to support up to 1 lakh users.
Suresh S. Reddy, VP, Huawei Enterprise Business Group, India said, “For an institution aiming to deploy such an extensive network in one go, the Huawei Campus Wi-Fi solution is the ideal solution, in that it allows for reduced operational cost, whilst boosting efficiency in terms of control, access and manageability. The single solution allows access for over 10,000 users to a highly reliable and seamless wireless (or wired) experience.”
Dr. Abdul Salam, vice chancellor, Calicut University said the Wi-Fi solution provides the university with a centralized Internet connection facility, thereby boosting access and connectivity to each person in the campus.
The Wi-Fi deployment will be followed by the setting up of 160 access points. These access points are set to be deployed at the seminar complex for visitors to the University; in the library complex as well as in hostels and individual education departments, to provide 24×7 internet facilities to students.
The University aims to get 16,000 online, in its efforts to provide each person affiliated with the University online.
