Colubris Networks, a provider of wireless LANs, has announced that the University of the South has deployed Colubris to provide wireless access to students, faculty and community members.
The University of the South has deployed 55 Colubris MultiService Access Points (MAPs) and one Colubris MultiService Controller (MSC), and plans to deploy up to 170 MAPs once the deployment is complete. The single-radio MAP- 320s and dual-radio MAP-330s offer ‘plug and play’ and centralized management features. Once deployed, the MAPs securely and automatically connect to the Colubris MSC, which allows the university to manage the access points from a single location.
Rob Scott, president and CEO of Colubris, said: Universities are among the most forward-thinking institutions when it comes to technology and thus, need a future-proof wireless infrastructure to support the growing number of applications they deploy. By deploying Colubris, the University of the South is getting a wireless infrastructure that will support new applications and initiatives, without significant upgrades or investments.
