California College District Boosts Wired and Wireless Network Performance

San Bernardino Community College District Enhances Capacity, Flexibility, and BYOD Access.

San Bernardino Community College District currently oversees San Bernardino Valley College, Crafton Hills College, the Economic Development and Corporate Training (EDCT), and its own public television and radio station (KVCR TV-FM). The college needed to replace outdated switches and boost reliability, performance, and Wi-Fi coverage.

Extreme Networks provided a comprehensive solution made up of BlackDiamond® and Summit® switches, Summit WM Controllers and Altitude™ Access Points to support the district-wide deployment.

  • SBCCD has the performance, reliability, and availability to support student devices—smart phones, tablets, laptops, etc. — accessing network resources and the Internet
  • The network design, based on ExtremeXOS®, is simple to manage and efficient, with critical features and automation capabilities performed across all Summit switches
  • The high-performance infrastructure provides the quality of service necessary to support VoIP and video as well as demanding administrative applications
