New Delhi: HCL Infosystems (, Indias premier information-enabling company, on 7 January announced the implementation of a wireless local area network (LAN) solution for the Amity Business School, institutions of Ritnand Balved Education Foundation (RBEF), a leading Noida-based premier educational institution.

This will enable Amity to go completely wireless, making it the first of its kind in the country to do so. HCL Insys is also engaged in other IT infrastructure projects with Amity in the areas of IT security, intranet, messaging and other IT management services.

Says Dr Ashok K Chauhan, founder president of the 34 Amity institutions across the country: "Consistent with our promise to provide an unparalleled learning experience, we have stolen the march over other educational institutions by becoming pioneers in wireless communications on our campus. By opting for HCL Infosystems, we believe we have partnered with the best in the industry. It has unmatched expertise in this area and is known for their innovative solutions."

HCL Insys vice-president (operations) George Paul says: "HCL Insys has a tremendous domain knowledge in the education segment. We have successfully implemented many state-of-the-art solutions across the country. Our key strength is our ability to adapt to changing technologies quickly and bring to our customers the very best and the latest solutions. The wireless LAN solution will facilitate learning and overall development of the students at Amity. We are pleased to be associated with this prestigious project."

The sprawling 15-acre campus of Amity on the link road between Noida and Delhi has been deployed all across with wireless intranet and Internet connections. Students, faculty members and visitors to the Amity campus will not require a phone jack or data point to get connected to the institutes network. They will have the ability to use their laptops/hand-held PDAs to communicate through e-mail, conduct library search, participate in an online discussion or surf the Net from anywhere on the campus.

The technology adopted is based on IEEE 802.11b standard operating at 11Mbps bandwidth using 2.4GHz direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS). The wireless access points are strategically positioned within the campus to ensure free roaming of laptops. These access points seamlessly integrate with the existing fibre-based wired network backbone of the campus. It provides authentication and security using wired equivalent privacy (WEP) standards.

HCL Insys is helping Amity achieve the same feat at the 2.1-acre campus of the Amity Business School at Saket, south Delhi, and the 120-acre campus of the Amity Business School at Education Valley in Manesar, Gurgaon.
