Wireless Case Study: University of Dammam

Connecting a New Generation of Learners

University of Dammam enhances student and faculty experiences with unified communications, collaboration, and broad Wi-Fi coverage.


For Saudi Arabia’s University of Dammam, the ongoing challenge is growth.  The right technology is essential to connecting its 16 campuses across 500 kilometers (435 miles). The university wanted to:

  • Deploy a scalable, integrated solution for unified communications and collaboration
  • Build the supporting infrastructure to provide wireless and wired connectivity
  • Provide access to course materials from anywhere
  • Facilitate face-to-face online collaboration among faculty



An end-to-end infrastructure provides reliable services and Wi-Fi for 57,000 users.

  • Offers comprehensive, high performance Wi-Fi for students, faculty, and guests
  • Helps faculty collaborate with an “in-person” experience
  • Scales easily to support growth and reduce total cost of ownership

“The addition of high-density Wi-Fi enabled a complete transformation for the university.”

– Dr. Saad AlAmri

Dean of Information and Communication Technologies, University of Dammam
