Create a Mobility Experience that Ensures Student Success

Mobility is transforming the higher education campus.

Students are more satisfied, administrators and staff work more efficiently, and faculty can instantly collaborate on research and course projects. But to achieve these outcomes and drive student success, campus users need reliable access on the mobile devices and apps they choose.

Classroom- and dorm-proof Wi-Fi

Don’t let mobility hotspots like lecture halls and dorms bring your network to its knees. Aruba Wi-Fi brings order to the chaos in lecture halls, classrooms and dorms. Whether indoors or out, our 802.11ac Wi-Fi with ClientMatch™ technology ensures that everyone connects to the best-performing AP on the network. Aruba Wi-Fi also integrates a next-generation mobility firewall that prioritizes critical apps that are delay-sensitive.

Mobile screen sharing and printing

Empower teachers to present lectures using tablets. Let dorm residents’ use and share their Apple TV or Google Chromecast. Aruba AirGroup™ technology makes screen sharing with AirPlay, AirPrint and DLNA mobile-friendly. It reduces multicast traffic that impedes Wi-Fi performance and filters which devices you can see based on a user’s role and location. Aruba makes it so simple that users can register their own devices through a web portal or mobile app.

Secure visitor access without involving IT

Give alumni, prospective students and visiting scholars a fast and personalized guest Wi-Fi experience. Aruba ClearPass Guest let’s students and faculty sponsor visitors without calling the IT helpdesk. Sponsored guests get a username and password via email or SMS so they can connect when they arrive. You can even brand and personalize a captive portal to promote athletic events to students or fundraising effort to alumni.
