Suffolk College is providing its students, staff and visitors with internet access using a wireless Lan that incorporates data traffic management to ensure a reliable service.
The performance of Suffolk’s wireless Lans will be dependant on various factors, including the construction of the building, the number of users on the network and whether different types of access technologies are being used on the network.
Suffolk has chosen a wireless Lan from Airespace. College director of network and new media services Rod Burrell, said, “The Airespace system is the only wireless Lan system we evaluated that combines radio frequency management with best-in-class security. It also enables us to cost effectively deliver wireless connections with minimal hands-on intervention.”
Burrell says that the Airespace Wireless Enterprise Platform delivers consistent performance regardless of network load. The system’s management technology automatically detects data traffic changes in the air space and adjusts the network configuration for optimal performance.
The system also detects rogue access points installed by users without authorisation, and can block malicious activity.
