Top 5 Reasons Universities are Replacing WLAN Controllers

Wireless LAN (WLAN) controllers have been the predominate Wi-Fi platform of choice for colleges and campuses over the past 10 years. But, advances in the cloud, AI, and location are changing all that!

Modern WLAN architectures bring unprecedented automation, stability, flexibility and scale - without disrupting existing network design. This is why top schools like Dartmouth, Stanford Law, and Guilford College are switching from controllers to the cloud at a rapid pace.

Guilford College

"Our students are very demanding when it comes to the on-campus network. Juniper, driven by Mist AI, provides unique features that let us satisfy the most stringent wireless requirements, such as customizable Wi-Fi service levels, event correlation for rapid root cause analysis and a virtual network assistant that makes troubleshooting fast and easy for our team. In addition, Juniper enables us to transition our Wi-Fi operations to the cloud, delivering new levels of scalability and agility that we could not achieve with our previous controller-based WLAN architecture."
