Russia's Nizhni Novgorod State University is to become the country's first academic WiFi zone. The university is using Cisco Aironet wireless local area network for the project, which was created in conjunction with Intel. The network will provide e-learning resources to both lecturers and students. Cisco access points have been installed in seven buildings on the university campus, providing WiFi coverage for most of the conference halls, research and educational facilities, plus administrative offices. Each access point can support 20-plus users.
