Tecsher Networks has designed, and implement solutions to a number of Educational and Corporate Campuses. The solutions have been provided on a turnkey basis, which reduces the complexity for the customer, and ensures a single point of contact.

A campus network is a computer network made up of an interconnection of local area networks (LANs) within a limited geographical area. The networking equipments (switches, routers) and trasnmission media (optical fiber, copper plant, Cat5 cabling etc) are almost entirely owned (by the campus tenant / owner: an enterprise, university, government etc).

In the case of a college or university, its campus area network is likely to interconnect a variety of campus buildings, including administrative buildings, academic buildings, university libraries, campus or student centers, residence halls, gymnasiums, and other outlying structures, like conference centers, technology centers, and training institutes.

Much like a University campus network, a corporate campus network serves to connect buildings. Campus networks are normally interconnected with high speed Ethernet links operating over optical fiber such as Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

Wireless Networks for the Campus:

Wireless networking has allowed increased computing mobility by allowing end-users to connect to LAN's without cables. Basic wireless networking requires two pieces, a wireless transceiver "Access Point" connected to your LAN, and a wireless network card in your laptop or desktop (most laptops have this built in). These two basic pieces create a wireless network connection.

Installations can get very complicated when you take the following into account: security, encryption, physical building attributes (size, elevator shafts, concrete, etc), network management, and more. There are many wireless network consultants who will perform a site audit, and propose the best course of action in terms of placing your access points.
