Founded in 1949, Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), located in Yogyakarta, is Indonesia's oldest and largest university of higher learning. The institution has approximately 55,000 students, 2,500 faculty members, and a campus that spans 360 acres. As the school seeks to achieve a seamless network experience that is shared between its two campuses, the biggest challenge to school campus networks is bandwidth. The decade old campus network had to serve two campuses and connect more than 25 application systems that include research, teaching, administration, library, and the campus' all-in-one card systems. Connection was slow and unstable, which presented challenges to teaching and learning.

After much consideration and evaluation, to ensure seamless connectivity across the campus, Huawei provided the Agile Campus Network Solution – a solution that creates a new, highly reliable network offering high bandwidth, total Wi-Fi coverage, and easy management and maintenance.
