Looking at last week’s wireless LAN adoption news…
Ruckus took the opportunity this week to announce that 24 colleges and universities have decided to install Ruckus’ 802.11n wireless LAN technology over the last 90 days. The most recent school to sign on is Benedict College in Columbia, S.C. Benedict will run campus Internet radio and television over the networks, as well as IP video surveillance.
The rest of the schools that have signed on with Ruckus include Temple University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Virginia at Wise, Carleton University, Emmanuel College, the University of Toronto, Lake Superior State University and an assortment of international schools in Switzerland, Canada, Costa Rica, Indonesia, India, and Malaysia.
Meanwhile, Aruba Networks announced that French logistics company Groupe FM Logistic has bought Aruba’s AirWave Wireless Management Suite to manage its heterogeneous wireless LAN network in warehouses spread across 12 countries.
Group FM Logistic will use AirWave’s role-based administration and its fault and management reporting features to consolidate management of its Cisco and Motorola Wi-Fi hardware.
UPDATE: Ruckus’ original press release on its higher education customers mistakenly identified Temple University as a customer. Temple University is actually a Meru Networks customer.
