Wagner College is a liberal arts college in Staten Island, New York. The college has about 2200 students. Its small campus allows for staff and students to collaborate and build lasting relationships taking an approach to learning via practical application and hands-on research.
This was a really good deployment from start to finish. A lot of it has to do with the product itself, and I think the other half is the support we got from the engineers to fine tune how we wanted to do things. It was nice to have the ability to customise how people would be connecting. That has been a big plus.

Wagner College’s buildings are older which allows for a historic campus feel. This, however, creates a challenge for wireless and wired network infrastructure. Getting connectivity to the classes/residence buildings and various students’ devices has been an uphill battle. Increase in demand from multiple devices of students and staff, and the rush to expand the network in 2020 for remote learning required greater bandwidth. All the while budget constraints have made it challenging to stay ahead of technology.
Wagner College technologically transformed its campus with help from Alcatel Lucent-Enterprise solutions. With only one wireless access point per corner on each floor in the largest residence hall, and the number of student devices increasing, Wagner provided limited connectivity.
Installing feature rich, cost effective Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess® Stellar APs enhanced coverage and connectivity, while syncing Stellar with Alcatel-Lucent OmniVista® Performance Management UPAM solution enabled them to increase management efficiency and security at a fair price.
The ALE customer service, sales and engineer teams also provided helpful brainstorming across network improvements and next projects which has meant Wagner College now competes technologically with colleges around the nation.
