Curtin University is ranked top1% of universities and has established its presence in the Asia Pacific. In Malaysia, the 300-acre campus opened in 2002, in the suburb of Senadin, in Miri, and is in the midst of open flatland that stretches all the way to the Baram River, where the Trans-Borneo Highway and the ASEAN Bridge links Miri to neighboring Brunei.
Curtin University needs to upgrade the WiFi in the off-campus accommodation, Lakeside Apartment. As the deployment is in the midst of the pandemic, there is a challenge in physical deployment. They need a solution that can be deployed swiftly and safely without affecting their daily activities and lessons. The answer should support real-time monitoring and able to generate comprehensive network performance reports. The solution must be robust enough to serve 500 students in the 220 Rooms with a maximum of 1000 devices connected.
EnGenius AI-Cloud License-FREE SMB network management meets Curtin's requirement of ease of deployment and budget. EnGenius Cloud solution allows the IT department to pre-configure and plan all their deployments on the Cloud, making the deployment swift and easy. EnGenius Cloud's multi-tenancy structure allows designated areas to be dedicated to specific IT support. The IT department can also easily replicate the configurations and provision the network's configurations on the visualized dashboard. The simplified and visualized dashboard and topology view allow the support team to identify issues and address technical issues remotely with the user-friendly tools provided. For On-site support, EnGenius Cloud-to-Go provided simple tools and a user-friendly interface.
As the deployment operation will need to suit the daily operation of the University Campus, devices can be pre-configured and provisioned so that they can be deployed in phases and schedules. Although the coverage need is huge, on-site deployment is all done with minimum coordination with “plug-n-play” action. Wi-Fi signal is strong enough to penetrate the classrooms, student apartment, hostel rooms. EnGenius Cloud 11ac and 11ax APs can handle the heavy traffic on campus, lecture halls, and student accommodation.
