Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN) reported that Stony Brook University, a Top Public National University according to the 2014 edition of the US News and World Report survey, and part of the State University of New York (SUNY), has deployed Aruba's 802.11ac Wi-Fi solution in key areas of its campus.

Stony Brook has upgraded its Javits Lecture Center and plans to outfit its new indoor sports complex with Aruba's 802.11ac infrastructure to accommodate the dramatic increase in mobile and wireless devices that the University's 24,000 students and 12,000+ staff are using on campus.

Stony Brook has an existing Aruba Networks wireless LAN (WLAN) that covers the majority of the campus and is comprised of 3,000 Aruba 802.11n access points, the AirWave Network Management System and the ClearPass Access Management System. In the University's Javits Lecture Center, 10 lecture halls are used by approximately 17,000 students weekly, with an average lecture hall holding 200 students and the largest accommodating more than 500. As students in the Lecture Center are increasingly bringing multiple mobile devices to class and relying on the wireless network, Stony Brook recognized the need to upgrade the Center's wireless infrastructure to meet the rigorous performance and density demands. The University deployed 44 Aruba AP-225 802.11ac access points to cover the Lecture Center's 10 halls.
