Utility-Like Infrastructure Supports Campus-Wide BYOD and Virtualization

Granular control through automated, role-based access.

Sinclair Community College is an urban community college in downtown Dayton, Ohio, and is the largest community college at a single location in the state of Ohio. In addition to its 65-acre comprehensive campus in Dayton, Sinclair also has five remote sites.

As an early adopter of BYOD, Sinclair Community College had developed an in-house secure LAN solution using open and standard products that allowed them to provide differentiated access based on user and device.

To meet the escalating network needs of their student body of 24,000 and faculty and staff of 4,000, Sinclair sought a solution that would provide the necessary granular controls and automation necessary to make their BYOD environment secure, flexible and easy to manage.
