To develop wireless campus network
China-based Southwest Jiaotong University, or SWJTU, will develop its wireless campus network using the H3C enterprise wireless networking system from 3Com, a converged network infrastructure supplier.
According to 3Com, the H3C integrated wireless system will connect the Xipu, Jiuli and Emei campuses of SWJTU, providing wireless access to 50,000 teachers and students in classrooms, lecture halls, dormitories and outdoor common areas.
3Com has said that the H3C solution effectively integrates the university’s original wired network with its wireless network, and provides secure wireless access to users through a combination of unified hardware platforms, network management, user management and security modules.
It reportedly enables a user roaming on both networks to choose differentiated accounting modes to meet the network’s operational and management requirements, and is integrated with the campus one-card system, which facilitates access for teachers and students. H3C also supplied the university with an intuitive, web-based, integrated and intelligent management system, IMC.
3Com claims that H3C’s integrated mobile network system protects the university’s infrastructure investment by supporting future expansion as well as the next generation of technical protocols such as IPv6, 802.11n and WAPI.
The wireless network also supports wireless surveillance, VoWIFI and other value-added wireless applications such as Page Push. Additionally, guaranteeing jitter-free, quality of service ensures prioritized output of video and voice on the network.
Bob Mao, CEO of 3Com, said: We offer one of the broadest and freshest portfolios of networking products and solutions in the industry, which is why organizations such as Southwest Jiaotong University are turning to us to build such significant wireless and wired networks. Our H3C secure, scalable and flexible integrated mobile network solution will result in a wired and wireless integrated digital campus platform that meets SWJTU’s current and future needs.
