King’s College, a Catholic college in the Holy Cross tradition, located in Northeast Pennsylvania where the college’s downtown campus covers about six blocks and serves 3,300 students, faculty and staff. With over 40 majors and a variety of programs and concentrations, U.S. News & World Report has ranked King’s among America’s best colleges for 19 straight years.
To support King’s College’s long range plan of moving into the virtual application delivery paradigm, and to enable students, faculty and staff to use their own devices while still being able to deliver all of the college’s resources and capabilities, King’s College selected Extreme Networks to upgrade their aging network. The college installed 375 IdentiFi™ Wireless access points to provide robust and reliable access and ensure a consistent user experience.
The Extreme Networks network upgrade enables King’s College to:
- Take BYOD to the next level by providing a robust campus-wide wired and wireless solution that can be easily managed from a central location
- Investigate virtual application delivery solutions
- Deliver the best customer experience possible, which is their number one goal
