The Myriad, a student housing property developer and operator, has selected Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE) to provide converged wired-wireless LAN infrastructure for their modern living communities in Dubai and Muscat.
The Myriad Dubai and The Myriad Muscat deployed a cloud-based converged wired-wireless LAN solution from Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, each comprised of over 70 LAN switches and 1900 wireless access points. In addition, The Myriad Dubai also implemented an ALE Unified Communications solution.
“It was crucial to have a solid network foundation and ubiquitous Wi-Fi to offer the very best for our young residents,” said Haseeb Malik, general manager – Technologies, Strategic Housing Group.
“We aligned with The Myriad’s expectations and provided a simplified, efficient and secure communications and network infrastructure intended to enhance the experience for students and young professionals,” said Rui Silva, distribution manager, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, in a statement.
The Myriad deployed Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 6900 Stackable LAN Switches at the core and OmniSwitch 6560 Stackable LAN Switches at the edge for secure and easy management.
The Alcatel-Lucent OmniVista 2500 Network Management System provides IT admins with cohesive management and network-wide visibility as well as a full set of tools for converged campus networks.
The Myriad plans to deploy Alcatel-Lucent Rainbow, the company’s UCaaS platform, in the near future. The Rainbow solution will allow The Myriad to integrate real-time communications into its existing business applications and provide residents with a single platform for unified communications and collaboration.
