With the assistance of Aercor, a leading Wi-Fi professional services company headquartered in Eagan, Minnesota, UNI implemented 7signal’s Sapphire Wi-Fi Performance Management System to capture the real-time data needed to address Wi-Fi performance and connectivity problems. Sapphire Eye units were installed in the student union, a couple of high-density classrooms and one dorm. UNI also engaged experts from 7signal to help analyze the performance data and optimize the school’s wireless network.
"By the time I could get there, the problem would have gone away"
The Sapphire solution relieved the pressure on UNI’s sole wireless network engineer to try to troubleshoot problems as they occurred. Instead he was able to use historical and real-time performance data enables UNI to focus on resolving the issues that would deliver maximum benefits. Sapphire also provided the data to support the business cases for tactical wireless upgrades. Thanks to 7signal, UNI has been able to address several severe performance and connectivity issues campus-wide and take steps to ensure that its infrastructure is capable of supporting a growing numbers of users and devices.
