The University of Miami and its health system, UHealth-University of Miami Health System, have selected Aruba Networks for an organization-wide wireless network upgrade.

The project covers 200 buildings and 11 million square feet of the university’s three main campuses, as well as UHealth’s three hospitals and two dozen outpatient facilities.

To date, the institution has installed approximately 2,300 Aruba Access Points, with another 4,000 planned over the next 12 months. Currently, the main university buildings, hospitals, and specialty practices are all outfitted with the new gear. In addition, the organization has just announced plans to open a new, 200,000-square-foot outpatient facility that will be upgraded with Aruba infrastructure.

Future plans for the academic environment revolve primarily around a Bring Your Own Device strategy, in which the university wants to allow students, faculty, and staff to self-configure their personal devices to the network without IT involvement, while maintaining security and HIPAA requirements.
