Avaya Scores a Technology First in Korean Educational Sector with802.11g Wireless Network for Induk Institute of Technology

02-04-2004
  • New Wireless Network gives 7,000 users access from anywhere on campus at speeds up to 54Mbps, four times faster than existing network

Avaya Korea Ltd. announced that Avaya has won the Induk Institute of Technology's next-generation wireless local area network (WLAN) project.

Avaya Korea Ltd., the Korean subsidiary of Avaya Inc. (NYSE:AV), a leading global provider of communications networks and services for businesses, today announced that Avaya has won the Induk Institute of Technology's next-generation wireless local area network (WLAN) project.

Now 7,000 students, faculty and staff will have convenient access to the Internet using PDAs and notebooks, regardless of where they are on campus. This will lead to better and faster data collection and information sharing as well as educational support. For example, the enhanced speed enables users to access the intranet and the Internet faster, giving them much greater convenience in registering for classes, downloading large size files, utilizing multimedia applications, etc.

With this project, Induk Institute of Technology will become the first campus in Korea to deploy 802.11g standard WLAN. Providing data at a rate or 54 megabits per second - four times faster than the existing campus network - this new technology will solve the need for network speed and encourage new, flexible working practices.

Avaya Korea and Fusion Network Consulting deployed Avaya Wireless across the campus. Induk Institute of Technology hopes this project will become a model for other campuses that seek high-speed WLAN services.

Gi Jung Huh, IT manager at Induk Institute of Technology, said, "We decided to introduce an 802.11g-based high-speed next-generation WLAN system because the existing WLAN was slow, causing inconveniences to users." He added, "We selected Avaya as it received the highest evaluation results on performance, cost, technology support, investment protection, etc. at BMT."

Avaya Wireless AP-3 is a next-generation WLAN solution with dual slot architecture. This allows various types of configurations including 802.11b and 802.11a, or 802.11g and 802.11a, etc., which allows enterprises to protect existing investments while gradually migrating to faster, next-generation WLAN. Avaya WirelessAP-3 supports WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and provides enhanced security while reducing implementation costs through 802.3af PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) standard support, which doesn't require a separate power line.

Jong Woong, Lee, IP Convergence Director of Avaya Korea, said, "We hope that the Induk Institute of Technology reference, the first local 802.11g standard WLAN project, will be a case for benchmarking the technology." He added, " With this project-win we expect to secure a stronger position in the local next-generation WLAN market."
