Credit Dormitories Institution Wireless Network Project


Students in the dormitories of Higher Education Credit and Dormitories gained fast, secure and free internet access with the project implemented by Innova. The project realized with Cisco Wireless solutions was the largest wireless network project covering 81 provinces, in terms of the setup time and the number of access points, that has been realized in Turkey.

Initiated in order to support education in Turkey, Turk Telekom - Credit and Dormitories Institution Wi-Fi project provided free secure and fast wireless internet to 310 thousand students. The opening ceremony was lead by then-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in June 2013. Wireless network service is used in 1240 dormitory buildings in Turkey's 81 provinces.

The project, launched in February 2013, reached a total of 1240 dormitory buildings of 347 KYK dormitories, where 310 thousand students from all over the country received service, in less than 3 months. The project continued for newly opened or renewed buildings of the Credit and Dormitories and provided wireless internet access services to nearly 500 thousand students in nearly 600 dormitories by the end of 2016.

 

Largest Wi-Fi Project

Turk Telekom - Credit and Dormitories Institution Wi-Fi project was the largest wireless network project covering 81 provinces, in terms of the setup time and the number of access points.

The project, using high-quality internationally recognized products of Cisco, minimized future failures and problems while at the same time established a long-lasting and sustainable network infrastructure.

With the established infrastructure, hundreds of thousands of students staying in the dormitories were able to access the Internet safely. The installation conducted by the Innova teams was supported by Cisco's network optimization solutions and a highly optimized system for each dormitory was created. The automatic optimization support and accelerator effects of the products provided the students with more efficient internet access.

The process of wireless network access and registration for the students was managed through the Cisco Intelligence Services Gateway (ISG). This solution was also controlled by the ASR-1000 series routers, which prove the expertise of Cisco in network technologies. ASR-1000 series type equipment enables continuous improvement without any need to interrupt during the upgrade, so hundreds of thousands of students may benefit from the wireless access and seamless use of the central network.
