China’s first total wireless broadband indoor network is established in the Central University of Nationalities

The Central University of Nationalities (CUN) announced that the first phase of Wireless Campus was officially in operation. Unlike traditional wired or wireless LAN that requires multi-tiered network switches and many of cables and sockets to reach every user, they have deployed the wireless mesh networking technology from Azalea where only ONE wired network connection is required for the whole Arts Building. Beside providing teachers, students and staffs high quality network access, they can also enjoy wireless VoIP and video streaming applications anywhere within the coverage thanks to the telecom-graded roaming and stability of Azalea’s equipment.

The CUN is one of the most prestigious universities of China. The new Arts Building is also a symbol to the University. To provide a state-of-the-art information platform throughout the building was also one of their aims. The interior architecture of the building was quite complex, however laying large cable ducts and heavy construction was? strictly prohibited by the university council. Common Hot Spot solution has difficulties in coping with their predicted growing network usage, especially for mobile staffs. So, their IT department decided to count on the wireless mesh technology from Azalea. In this project, MSR1000 wireless mesh routers were used and installed at strategic locations to give seamless 802.11a/b/g coverage. The installation works were taken place even during the normal teaching hours without any disturbance. In the future, when concentrated or heavy usage is identified, like having academic conference in certain lecture theatre, all they need to do is simply power up an extra wireless mesh router in situ. The abilities of self-configured, self-healing, self-managed and self-discovered greatly reduced the administrative workloads for the IT department.
