AirDefense announced that its enterprise security product is being deployed byCardiffUniversity to secure the largest Wireless LAN so far built in the UK. The contract to build this network was awarded to RM the leading supplier of ICT to the UK education market. Just like any wired network, a WLAN requires a comprehensive security solution to guard against intruders and hackers and AirDefense was chosen to defend Cardiff's WLAN after rigorous testing.

The wireless network will cover 66 buildings across three square miles. It will include over 1,300 Access Points and cater for 30,000 students, 5,000 staff and visiting guests. The goals of the University are to ensure maximum wireless coverage by expanding the existing wireless capability for the whole campus and outlying peripheral sites. In addition, it has to help realize the goals of the Modern Working Environment project that is the core of the university's Information Services Strategy for the future.
