Carnegie Mellon Selects Motorola WLAN for Silicon Valley Campus

Carnegie Mellon University has deployed Motorola's enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) infrastructure to provide seamless mobile connectivity indoors and outdoors to faculty and students at its campus in Mountain View, California. The campus specializes in graduate programs in software engineering, software and management, security, mobile technology, and engineering and technology innovation and management.

Specifically, Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley installed the Motorola RFS7000 WLAN switch in combination with 802.11a/b/g AP300 access ports (APs) to provide wireless Internet access to students and faculty across the entire campus. Carnegie Mellon will also integrate the Motorola WLAN technology into its Silicon Valley classrooms, utilizing it as a mobility platform for emerging wireless technologies and next-generation networks. The RFS7000 can support seamless mobile access to multiple RF networks, providing interfaces for WLAN, mesh, cellular, RFID and in the future WiMAX.
