Elevating the Student Experience with Fast and
LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Media OutReach -
November 27, 2018 -Ruckus Networks,
an ARRIS company, today announced that Asia Pacific University (APU) selected
the company's indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi access points, SmartZone™ network controllers
switches, to deliver an exceptional digital experience for students
at its existing and new Technology & Innovation Campus.
The campus required a completely new network that was fast and reliable
but was also able to scale to meet the future demands of its growing student
population. APU's network team also faced a challenge of providing satisfactory
service levels to stakeholders across both of its campuses, which are located
approximately 1.5 km apart.
Ruckus Networks -- selected for its exceptional performance, simple configuration,
and optimal cost -- will build a complete scalable wired and wireless network
infrastructure to meet the growing needs of APU's expanding student population,
connected devices, and bandwidth requirements.
APU deployed Ruckus' access points to deliver seamless wireless network
roaming across both campuses. These access points are managed by Ruckus'
virtual SmartZone (vSZ) controller, which can scale up to 300,000 devices,
enabling administrators to expand and adapt the network according to the
The university also deployed Ruckus' ICX switches which simplified
network set-up and management, enhanced security, minimized troubleshooting,
and made upgrades easy. This resulted in significant time savings and fewer
resources. Also, the ICX switching architecture ensured excellent throughput
for the most demanding video, wireless interactive projection, and unified communications
including VoIP, VDI, and mobile applications.
APU is also looking at future network upgrades
that will help drive innovation, including analytics and insights for indoor
location tracking to help administrators track student movements within campus
buildings in case of emergencies. Another example is helping lecturers
automatically track attendance without requiring students to manually "tap-in"
using their student IDs.
"Ruckus enabled us to deploy a high-performance
network solution for our new campus, and focus our efforts on delivering
innovations for a world-class educational experience to our APU students to
enable digital learning," said Rasodin Ramuddin Hamzah, Technology Infrastructure
and Systems Manager, APU.
