Colubris WLAN provides Palmer with critical access control features and
support for bandwidth-intensive applications
WALTHAM, Mass. and SEATTLE, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- EDUCAUSE 2007 Annual Conference -- Colubris Networks, the leading global provider of intelligent wireless LANs (WLANs) for enterprises and service providers, today announced that Palmer College of Chiropractic, the largest chiropractic college in the world, has selected Colubris to provide a wireless infrastructure for its three campuses across the U.S. With Colubris, Palmer College will be able to provide full wireless coverage for its California and Florida campuses, while plans are underway to provide wireless coverage for most of the Iowa campus. In addition to this highly reliable wireless network, Colubris provides Palmer with critical security features for access control and healthcare industry compliance requirements.
Palmer College's alumni make up approximately one-third of the 75,000 chiropractors currently in practice worldwide. The college has three campuses: the main campus in Davenport, Iowa; West Campus in San Jose, Calif.; and the Florida Campus in Port Orange, Fla.
Palmer had previously deployed a wireless network, but the equipment lacked access control features to prevent outsiders from launching malicious attacks over the Palmer network. After evaluating several wireless LAN products, Palmer chose to deploy a wireless network from Colubris. Palmer is currently using nearly 100 Colubris MultiService Access Points (MAPs) across all three campuses, as well as nine Colubris MultiService Controllers (MSCs).
"The Colubris network provides us with the access control that we
require and lets us implement different criteria for access, such as giving
faculty the ability to instantly log on to the network, while requiring a
log-in page for students," said Mike Benedict, director of information
technology of Palmer College of Chiropractic. "In
