St. Edward’s is a private, liberal arts Catholic university in the Holy Cross Tradition with approximately 4,600 students, located in Austin, Texas. With a network of partner universities around the world, St. Edward’s is a diverse community that offers undergraduate and graduate programs designed to inspire students with a global perspective. St. Edwards University needed to have a strong, robust, and efficient wireless solution because their students bring 7-8 devices each to campus and faculty members had multiple devices as well.
