IIIT-Bangalore goes completely wireless
The Indian Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT-B) has become
"the most unwired institute in the country" with the inauguration
of its new wireless LAN setup at its Bangalore campus.
The entire 75,000 square feet campus is wirelessly enabled with Access points
installed in the entire campus to provide total mobility to students and professors.
A separate set of IP addresses are allotted for DHCP clients so that a visitor
to the campus can also use the wireless facility to browse the Net.
The wireless facility is spread over the entire campus and is accessible up
to the main gate of Infosys. In addition to this, the entire classroom is now
completely wireless, and this includes the microphone, control of PC, board
etc. A classroom is capable of seating 150 students and can be simultaneously
viewed using a video conferencing facility elsewhere on the campus.
The proposed solution was designed based on wireless access points spread over
the entire campus, and supported by Fast Ethernet backbone on copper interface
for inter-connectivity to the wired LAN. The entire setup (comprising of wireless
& passive components) has been designed and implemented by D-Link India
