Bangor University Students

gain easy Wi-Fi access using AIT portal

Founded in 1884, Bangor University has a long tradition of academic excellence and a strong focus on the student experience. Around 11,000 students currently study at the university, with 650 teaching staff based within 23 Academic Schools. The university had an aging Wi-Fi network requiring a complete refresh to provide students with unrestricted network access from all personal devices to the University ResNet, with ease of onboarding using Active Directory credentials.


With a limited budget, Bangor required an Enterprise class WLAN with a proven track record in similar high density Higher Education environments. The specification included a simple onboarding process, with English and Welsh language support and limiting the Students visibility of other devices on their hall subnet, regardless of their location. The University also wanted to identify all users on the network and allow students to use non-AD supported devices such as X-Boxes.

AIT implemented an Aerohive Cloud Wi-Fi solution providing new Access Points and Hive Manger software. A new portal written in English and Welsh was created by AIT’s software development team to provide students with their own Private Pre Shared Keys (PPSK) based on Active Directory Credentials.



All Students have reliable Wi-Fi access based on Active Directory credentials for all their personal devices including X-Boxes. Thanks to AIT’s software development skills the onboarding process is fast and secure with dual language support. Through a combination of Aerohive’s proven Cloud Wi-Fi technology and AIT’s integration and development skills, Bangor’s students now have secure and easy access to the internet.
