The World's Largest Wireless LAN - Go Buckeyes!

Aruba Networks deployed its Mobile Edge solution at The Ohio State University in what is believed to be the world's largest wireless LAN to date.

When the rollout is complete, the Aruba wireless network will cover Ohio State University's main campus-which comprises over 400 buildings and 25 million square feet, sitting on approximately 1,700 acres. The Aruba network will provide ubiquitous wireless access to the university's student population of over 50,000, in addition to over 27,000 faculty and staff.

Ohio State has estimated that over 3,000 Access Points (APs) are required for minimal coverage-and up to 10,000 APs may be required for optimal coverage, along with over 40 mobility controllers distributed across their three core router points of presence (POPs).
