Motorola Deploys Campus-Wide Wireless LAN for Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications
Highly Scalable, Secure WLAN Enables an Enhanced eLearning Experience with Voice, Video and Data Application Support
The Enterprise Mobility business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that it has deployed a campus-wide wireless LAN (WLAN) for Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, one of the top universities in China. The campus-wide WLAN will enable multimedia Internet-based teaching, automatic academic office management, Internet access, long-distance teaching and many other services. Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications is one of the few universities in China to provide complete wireless LAN coverage to every building in addition to the campus’ outdoor spaces.
“With its high performance and scalability, Motorola’s wireless LAN solutions will provide the university with reliable, end-to-end coverage, security and manageability both outdoors and inside academic and administrative buildings, hostels, and canteens,” said Jian-Zheng Xu, campus network manager, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications. “Motorola is helping us realize our goal of managing and teaching through the WLAN network to provide convenience to the lecturers and enhance the students’ learning experiences.”
The Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications WLAN features Motorola solutions for indoor and outdoor coverage, enabling an all-wireless enterprise. To deliver campus-wide coverage spanning more than 4.5 million square feet and with the potential to support 15,000 users, the WLAN required 600 access points (APs) including Motorola AP300 wireless access ports and mesh-enabled AP-5131 access points. The campus also utilizes Motorola’s highly scalable RFS7000 RF switch which features the Wi-NG architecture and the RF Management suite. The mesh connectivity of the AP-5131 complements the existing wired network points and extends the WLAN outdoors blanketing virtually every open space across the university.
Motorola’s enterprise WLAN solution centrally manages all the wireless APs and integrates with the telecommunications network. This enables the IT management team to control and monitor the entire wireless network at the campus network center to ensure that the system is able to automatically detect and report any AP errors and, seamlessly, adjust the power of nearby APs to compensate for blind spot areas. The system can provide backup data for two campuses so that the WLAN coverage will not be affected if either the wireless network or wired network is disrupted. Additionally, the Motorola WLAN provides state-of-the art security with support for Wi-Fi protected access (WPA) and WPA2. The inclusion of a wireless intrusion protection system (WIPS) further enhances security by monitoring, detecting, protecting and helping prevent intrusions to the wireless network.
The WLAN at Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications will enable wireless Internet access for its lecturers, students, staff and distinguished visitors at any location on the campus. User verification is managed through a central verification platform at the campus network center to ensure security, stability and manageability of the network.
“Motorola’s wireless switches and AP distribution technology are ideal for large-scale WLAN deployments in education, healthcare, and the hospitality industry,” said Steve Choi, general manager of Greater China, Motorola’s Enterprise Mobility Business. “Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications is a pioneer in deploying an indoor and outdoor wireless LAN to enhance the learning experience.”
Enterprise WLAN is part of Motorola’s portfolio of innovative wireless broadband solutions and services that complement and complete internet protocol (IP) networks. Delivering IP coverage to virtually all spaces both indoors and outdoors, the portfolio includes fixed broadband, mesh, broadband over powerline, WiMAX and Enterprise WLAN solutions for private and public networks.
