University Deployment Hailed As Largest 802.11n Network To Date

An interesting aspect of wireless deployment is the need for expertise in myriad technologies. VARs need to understand the network needs as well as resolving clients monitoring and management needs, just to name a few factors in a successful wireless installation. An interesting news release from Entuity showcases the depth of knowledge needed for a wireless installation. In this case, the client, the University of Minnesota, challenged its VAR to create and provide management options for a 802.11n network used by the university's 80,000 students and staff -- a deployment Entuity claims is the largest 802.11n network in the world.
