Solution: WiFi Solutions, Unified Access
Nanfang College of Sun Yat-sen University located in Guangzhou China offers 42 majors in 10 departments or schools. Currently the college has more than 19,000 undergraduates and approximately 1,200 professors and teachers. The college deployed Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise solutions to address the increasing demand for network connectivity, and to manage the complex network operations.
The ALE technology is stable and reliable. The WLAN network, based on distributed architecture, is easy to configure, shortening the deployment period. The management platform offers rich data analytics and openness for third- party integration in the future.

The college planned to expand the campus to build a best-in-class learning environment for students.
The team recognized the need for a resilient network architecture with quick deployment and simple management.
Based on planning, the entire network was scheduled to be implemented a month-and-a-half before the new semester was to begin.
The college also required an excellent Wi-Fi user experience, as well as continuous and easy operational and maintenance services.
Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s global, proven track record of providing stable and reliable quality network solutions and services within the education industry set high expectations with the college Executive team.
ALE worked together with a Value-Added Distributor and Indirect Reseller to propose a mobile campus solution deployed as an Infrastructure as a Services (IaaS).
