UTB in collaboration with Batelco implements advanced Wi-Fi network in preparation for welcoming UTB students back to campus

The University of Technology Bahrain (UTB) in collaboration with Batelco has implemented one of the most advanced Wi-Fi solutions that is fully managed through the Cloud to provide advanced campus-wide Wi-Fi for students and faculty members at UTB’s campus in Salmabad. The university is the first institute in the Kingdom to install this advanced Wi-Fi service in readiness for the new academic year.

Batelco’s Cloud Managed Network Service, provided in partnership with Huawei, is delivered and managed in the cloud, resulting in quick installation times due to minimum onsite configuration, leading to lower installation and management costs. Once set up, the service can be managed and modified through an internet portal or mobile app.

President of the University of Technology Bahrain, Dr. Hasan Al Mulla, said: “Working closely with Batelco to deliver this superior Wi-Fi solution to our students has been a pleasure. We are proud to be the first university in the Kingdom to provide our students and faculty members with the cloud-managed service, and benefit from Batelco’s superior Wi-Fi service.”

Batelco General Manager, Enterprise, Abdulla Danish, said: “We are delighted to be the first in the Kingdom to deliver the latest superior Wi-Fi solution, in time for the current academic year. As an institute whose primary educational curricula centres on technology, UTB is the ideal location to roll-out the latest Wi-Fi solution, exclusively available from Batelco and supported by our long-term partner Huawei.”
