Aruba Tech Webinar: Dorm Wi-Fi Design in the Era of BYOD
Attached is the presentation from July 24th webinar with Brad Noblet (president of BN consulting and former CIO of Dartmouth College), Charles Rumford (Network Engineer, Information Resources & Technology team (IRT) at Drexel University) and Matthew Nocifore (Senior Director of Networking, IRT at Drexel).
Brad Noblet kicked off the webinar with a discussion on the challenges and best practice recommendations for the Wi-Fi site survey, AP placement and Wi-Fi capacity planning for residence halls. Charles and Matthew shared their insights, lessons learned and design/deployment best practices for supporting high density of mobile devices in residence halls. A new Wi-Fi design adopted by Drexel IRT returned with more than the double traffic usage and over 50% better student satisfaction.
