Universidad EAFIT was at a pivotal network point. Faculty wanted the ability to use new, and more demanding applications including video content. Pervasive wireless access had become a necessity for an enriched student experience. EAFIT took this opportunity to refresh the network to empower educators to innovate, to connect students academically and socially, as well as to better IT’s agility.

As one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Colombia, Universidad EAFIT is one of the first universities to receive the Ministry of National Education’s Institutional High Quality Accreditation twice in a row.


Given the rapid growth at Universidad EAFIT, Wi-Fi usage increased, causing wireless availability to drop below 85 percent. To improve the performance, security and manageability of their network, Universidad EAFIT partnered with Cisco to implement an end-to-end Cisco® solution for converged wired and wireless access.
