Catholic University of Maule, Campus Curicó, Chile, Implements 4ipnet Wireless Solutions

Catholic University of Maule was created in 1991, by Bishop of the Diocese of Talca, Monsignor Carlos Gonzalez Cruchaga in Chile. The university strives to educated students and train professionals imbued with Christian spirit and provide a diverse environment for its students.
To improve the existing campus-wide Wi-Fi access, the university decided to deploy 4ipnet access points along with WLAN controller in two buildings of the Campus Curico.  Students and faculty will have easy Internet access throughout the libraries, reading rooms, the theater, and indoor/outdoor common area.
II. Challenge

  • Supports up to 1100 concurrent users during peak time.
  • Access control—grant access only to students and campus faculty
  • A central monitoring/management system from the campus of Curico and should be able to integrate with future network system if desired.
