SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a global leader in wireless LANs and secure unified mobility solutions, today announced that University of Macau has deployed a campus-wide Aruba adaptive wireless LAN at its Taipa campus. Founded in 1981, the urban campus covers 572,000 square feet and supports more than 6,000 students and 800 faculty and staff. The University of Macau sought to replace its legacy Wi-Fi network comprised of autonomous access points in favor of a centrally managed wireless LAN with automatic load balancing, a role-based firewall for security, and fault-tolerant wireless controllers. Aruba was awarded the project based on its management system, integrated firewall, Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology, and N+1 controller redundancy.

“The university’s legacy Fat AP wireless network was difficult to manage, offered limited security, and had an inflexible VLAN arrangement – our new Aruba network addressed all of these issues,” said Jason Ho, University of Macau’s Director of ICTO. “The new centralized architecture makes short work of managing, troubleshooting, and updating the entire network. Network access had been a constant challenge, but our new role-based firewall provides a simple, flexible means of addressing the needs of our employees, students, and guests. Finally, the new network offers very flexible network segmentation: VLAN pooling can automatically assign a VLAN to a WLAN client, and the VLAN-related settings are based on the value returned by RADIUS server. Taken together these features address the shortcomings of our previous network and pave the way for a wide range of future applications.”
