The Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) had outgrown its legacy hardware controller-based WLAN. With the need to support 802.11ac data rates, greater density of devices and the increasing demand for Wi-Fi access, the EICC required a highly scalable, reliable 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi solution which could support its high profile events and its commitment to sustainability.
What we did
The EICC deployed ADTRAN’s Bluesocket virtual Wireless LAN (vWLAN) solution with Bluesocket BSAP-3040 802.11ac Wave 2 access points. vWLAN’s optional high availability software was also deployed to create a fault tolerant Wi-Fi environment to keep delegates connected.
