4ipnet Optimizes Wi-Fi Connectivity at Leibniz IPK Campus

4ipnet announced the successful deployment of its Wi-Fi connectivity and guest access solutions at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK), a nonprofit research institution and the center of the Biotech Campus Gatersleben in central Germany.


As an internationally renowned botanic genome research institution, it is essential for Leibniz IPK's Wi-Fi network to provide comprehensive coverage and reliable connectivity for its researchers. To meet this objective, the top priority of the institution's IT department was to upgrade the existing legacy Wi-Fi network to a reliable solution based on the latest 11ac standards.

"Given that we receive so many types of users on a regular basis, it is crucial for us to provide campus-wide Wi-Fi coverage and multiple user authentication methods," said Torsten Reuner, senior administrator of the institute's wireless infrastructure. After evaluating several vendors' Wi-Fi solutions, Leibniz IPK decided on 4ipnet as their final choice.
