Jacksonville State University Chooses Zebra to Overhaul Campus-Wide Wireless Network

Posted February 12, 2016

Zebra has announced that Jacksonville State University (JSU) has deployed a Zebra Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) for campus-wide Wi-Fi connectivity for faculty, students and visitors. The university decided to overhaul its aging Wi-Fi infrastructure in response to increased demand for Internet connectivity. After a multi-vendor assessment, JSU chose a Zebra 802.11ac WLAN to support their current and future wireless needs.

JSU required a high-performance WLAN as classroom assignments are incorporating smartphone apps while tablets and phablets are replacing the binder and composition notebook. In addition, most students are using at least three Internet-connected devices during the typical campus day and maybe more at night in dorms. With such specific needs, JSU sought a vendor that could provide a strong suite of solutions in one portfolio and chose Zebra’s latest 802.11ac WLAN – including NX7500 controllers, AP7502, AP7522 and AP7532 access points – to ensure reliable high-speed Internet access across the 459-acre campus.

The university now offers connectivity for heavy bandwidth applications anytime and everywhere, from the parking lot, campus buildings and housing units to student lounges, eateries, libraries, athletic facilities and even the dorm laundromat. Zebra provided a cost-efficient solution that is easy for JSU’s IT staff to manage. Previously, JSU had a multi-vendor wireless architecture that had become more complex and less interoperable, while failing to provide the level of connectivity needed to keep up with mobile device adoption.
