Dartmouth University, known for being an early Wi-Fi adopter, has big growth plans: Administrators are in the process of expanding the network from its original 200 access points to 1,500. The new network will use APs from Aruba and will support 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g.
It sounds like Dartmouth is responding to the bandwidth needs of students. Because Dartmouth has been on the leading edge of Wi-Fi, it'll be interesting to watch the university as WiMax products begin hitting the market. Stringing 1,500 APs sounds like a major pain while WiMax would require far fewer base stations.
