Investment Leads To Success
Liberty Living, a student accommodation provider housing 19,000 students, recently invested over £1million in their WiFi networks. The result? Satisfied students and a National Student Housing Survey award for Best Student Broadband.
Liberty Living have operated in the UK student accommodation sector for 16 years and can be found in 18 cities. They are well aware of what it takes to meet the demands of today’s student.
Partnering with ASK4, Liberty Living moved ahead with considerable work to their infrastructure over a five-month period. The goal was to deliver a fast, reliable Wi-Fi service that enabled students to operate Wi-Fi only (and wired) devices without interruption from any part of the building.
ASK4 undertook careful capacity planning and design for each accommodation building, and carried out the installation of nearly 3000 cable runs and 3000 access points across 46 sites. This included the use of ‘Best in Class’ Ruckus Access Points, and highly sophisticated software to map building layout and composition to engineer out channel interference.
Following a National Student Housing Survey award win, John Kenny applauded ASK4:
