WiFi Networks, Survey and Installation for College and University Campuses

Engineering Wi-Fi Wireless Network Solutions for Colleges and Universities

Delivering WiFi wireless networks for colleges and universities requires in-depth knowledge of the complex WiFi Planning, Design and Wireless Site Survey processes - some of which are totally unique to University and College WLAN deployments. A detailed Specification of Requirements document and comparative Analysis of Survey Results are also vital for success - to ensure the delivery of campus Wi-Fi networks that are fit for purpose.

Wi-Fi networks for college and university applications need to deliver increased coverage, ease of access, deterministic capacity (data bandwidth provision), effective traffic management, security, visibility and ease of management.

These demanding requirements - to support the WiFi access needs of Students, Lecturers, Academic and Administrative staff - are based on the need to enable student study; Internet access; social networking; access to College and University Administration applications, data and services; and more recently Voice over Wi-Fi services - for laptops, notebook PCs, iPhone, Android and other smartphones, iPads, tablet PCs, and the rapidly expanding range of wireless tablet / handheld devices.

Increasingly, Colleges and Universities want ubiquitous wireless coverage across the campus - providing in-building and outdoor WiFi coverage; WiFi service - with capacity - in lecture theatres; WiFi access in student accommodation and halls of residence.

Deploying WiFi successfully for College and University campuses places additional requirements too - including the need to optimise AP placement and minimise costs - and this places onerous demands on those responsible for WiFi network Planning, Design and Installation - including detailed usage assessment and capacity planning for the campus Wi-Fi network.

Eduroam Wireless Internet Access

Eduroam (EDUcation ROAMing) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop.

eduroam offers users from participating academic institutions secure Internet access at any other eduroam-enabled institution. The eduroam architecture that makes this possible is based on a number of technologies and agreements, which together provide the eduroam user experience: "open your laptop and be online".

The crucial agreement underpinning the foundation of eduroam involves the mechanism by which authentication and authorisation works:

  • The authentication of a user is carried out at their Identity Provider (IdP), using their specific authentication method.
  • The authorisation decision allowing access to the network resources upon proper authentication is done by the Service Provider (SP), typically a WiFi hotspot (University campus, etc.).
