Students’ bring your own device (BYOD) and remote access expectations are met with improved, pervasive wireless coverage at the University of Portsmouth.


  • A University is always in competition for the best students, academic staff and research investment on a global scale
  • Portsmouth needed to invest in IT, telephony and networking infrastructure
  • The institution also needed to replace limited wireless hotspots around the campus within selected social and staff areas as well as student accommodation




  • Widespread wireless Internet coverage for students, academics and support staff enables improved access to resources, regardless of location and device
  • Increased coverage in areas of higher density, such as the University Library and lecture theatres
  • Better remote access for students to resources around the campus, improving their learning environment
  • The solution also enables new maintenance jobs to be requested on the move, enabling health and safety issues to be addressed as they arise
