CHALLENGE

Vilshofen selected TP-Link in December 2020 to provide a reliable networking solution to rebuild its network that would solve the following problems:

  • Provides powerful and stable Internet access to all students, faculty, staff and visitors, especially on event days and during activities.
  • Supply the WLAN radio holes without laying a network cable.
