SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a global leader in wireless LANs and secure unified mobility solutions, today announced that McGill University has joined a succession of Canadian universities in deploying Aruba’s adaptive wireless LANs across its two Montreal campuses. McGill University is one of the largest universities in the province of Quebec, with more than 33,000 students and 1,570 faculty and staff members. The university has already deployed more than 2,700 out of a total of 3,700 Aruba wireless access points, making it among the largest university wireless networks in Canada. Including McGill University, Aruba networks now serve more than 250,000 students in Canada at universities from coast-to-coast.

“To work reliably in an educational institution a wireless LAN must be highly adaptable, massively scalable, and secure in the extreme,” said Gary Bernstein, McGill University’s IT Director. “Faculty and students alike look to the wireless network as an indispensable tool on a daily basis, and network outages are just not acceptable in this environment. McGill conducted an exhaustive technical evaluation and field trial before selecting Aruba for this application, and we are very pleased with both the speed of deployment and the solid performance of the installed network.”
