Campus Area Coverage in the Fast Lane

By Cambium Networks

Campus connectivity doesn’t have to be complex connectivity. Fixed wireless infrastructure and Wi-Fi access are a simple and efficient means to deploy connectivity in a matter of days. For some campuses, access is a convenience, where for others having reliable connectivity changes the world for everyone it touches.

Last year, healthcare students at the rural University of Mwaro in Burundi achieved equal access to educational information with a Cambium Networks gigabit fixed wireless network with Wi-Fi access and switching. They are the first university campus outside the major city of Bujumbura that has total Wi-Fi coverage. As a result, more than 1,000 students doing clinical studies can access a vast amount of information on the internet. The details are presented in this case study.

“The deployment of this state-of-the-art, end-to-end solution is a major accomplishment for the University of Mwaro,” said Niragira Olympe, Advanced RF Engineer, Axiom Networks in Rwanda. “Digitalization of education is already in sight and empowering the university to provide a reliable platform to the students is an important step.” Mr. Olympe shares his best practices for the design and operation of the network in this recorded webinar.

Deploying the latest technology with multi gigabit capabilities is as important as it can be in building the next generation of professionals. Students need access that is efficient and reliable. It is our honour to sponsor the University of Mwaro, project which will allow them to offer even better, faster and most user-friendly courses for their students.

Each campus application is different. The coverage area, user capacity, RF environment and cost play a significant role in determining a solution that will best fit the business and users. With Cambium Networks’ wireless fabric portfolio of solutions, service providers, system integrators and enterprise end users have a choice of solutions including 60 GHz, Wi-Fi 6 and CBRS technologies to tailor the network to meet their needs. Our solutions also make it easy to extend the network and add capacity as needs evolve. Connectivity is centrally managed to minimize downtime and maximize the end user’s Quality of Experience.
