World’s Largest 802.11n Network

Trapeze Networks finally has announced their deal with U. of Minnesota to build the world’s largest 802.11n network:

PLEASANTON, Calif., March 10, 2008 – Trapeze Networks®, the award-winning provider of Smart Mobile™ wireless solutions, today announced that the University of Minnesota plans to deploy its Smart Mobile™ 802.11n wireless network product suite campus-wide, marking the largest ever 802.11n deployment to date. Beginning in May and continuing over the next five years, approximately 9,500 access points (APs) will be deployed to serve more than 80,000 people across the university’s two campuses. Students, faculty and staff will have fast and secure wireless access wherever and whenever they want it.

This network features a lot of the code I wrote for Trapeze for 802.11n, 802.11e, and bandwidth management, so I hope Trapeze hasn’t screwed it up too badly in the weeks since I left that company for my current gig.
