Deployment Phases at Ohio State University
Ohio State is currently conducting proof of concept testing in the College of Humanities-which has 40 APs and two mobility controllers. It is also completing the installation of wireless throughout its residence halls, which will include over 1,800 APs and five mobility controllers. The university will complete the 31 residence hall network-which will be a high-density installation supporting over 12,000 students-within the next 30 days. After this phase is complete, the university will install 400 APs in student gathering areas, which are publicly accessible spaces that are freely open to all students, faculty, and staff across campus. These areas could include classrooms, food courts, study lounges, lobbies, and outside green spaces. The entire campus-wide wireless deployment is expected to be complete in 2011 with an estimated 10,000 APs deployed.
