Manipal University has implemented a campus wide WiFi Mesh Network to enable students access fast and convenient wireless Internet and also access the University’s local area network (LAN) anywhere in the campus while on the move.
The university had tied up with D-VoiS Broadband for the implementation of the WiFi network, capable of supporting high speed Internet and other broadband applications.
This self-sealing, self-adjusting network enables students to access Internet, intranet and other value added applications anytime, anywhere within the campus.
“With the WiFi Mesh network, the university students will have the advantage of accessing high speed Internet anywhere on the campus thus facilitating learning and ensuring academic excellence,” the Manipal Education and Medical Group CEO Ranjan Pai said.
The network is spread across 5 sq km and is capable of supporting more than 15,000 subscribers, the university said.
Moreover, Manipal University in association with D-VoiS would also implement other value added applications such as streaming video, e-library and video on demand in a phased manner.
