Solano CC Implementing Trapeze Wireless Network

Solano Community College in Northern California has selected products from Trapeze Networks for its wireless LAN infrastructure. The network serves 12,000 students and 700 faculty and staff in 20 buildings across three locations.

The school selected a solution that includes Mobility Exchange WLAN controllers, Mobility Point access points and the RingMaster Enterprise Wi-Fi Management Suite for centralized planning, configuring, deploying, monitoring and optimizing of the wireless network.

"From day one we were sold on RingMaster," said Justin Howell, a network telecommunications staff member at Solano. "We knew it would be easy to add access points, [service set identifiers] (SSIDs) and profiles, and we knew we would be able to control everything remotely. RingMaster also makes it simple to obtain real-time statistics we need for management of the WLAN."

"The whole implementation has been painless. We have a small staff that is able to manage what is becoming quite a large wireless implementation," said IT Director Jim Ennis. "We like Trapeze's solution because it helps us to be in 10 places at once--virtually, anyway."

The college serves about 20,000 students from its three campuses.
