Recently, the CCW Research, a well-known research firm in China, has released the “2015-2016 China Campus Network Authentication Solution Research”. According to the report, Ruijie has accounted for 39.4% in the China campus network authentication solution market, ranking first for two consecutive years. After ten years of continuous innovation, Ruijie’s Simplified Network Authentication Solution not only eliminates the network transmission bottleneck caused by the cumbersome user data packet transmission in campus network required by the traditional authentication process, but also provides users with ultimate network experience via its high compatibility and refined operation features, thereby establishing Ruijie’s leading market position.

In recent years, the new era of mobile devices dominating the campus network has dawned. A series of requirements such as how to provide users with high-quality wireless network comparable to wired network, how to manage the network efficiently and how to balance the pros and cons between self network constructed and cooperation with network operators has raised the requirement standard of university campus network development to a higher level. In regard to this, Ruijie focuses on this key application scenario and continues to innovate based on the Ruijie Campus Network Authentication Solution launched in 2002. With the industry-leading Simplified Network Solution as well as rich experience of university network construction and management, Ruijie has eventually announced the Simplified Network Authentication Solution.

Compared with the generic solutions in the industry, Ruijie’s authentication solution is designed based on the user-oriented and scenario-oriented concept, which can provide targeted and high-availability authentication technologies and solutions according to different user attributes, management modes and technical application scenarios. For example, portal design is adopted for authentication of the teachers and administration staff at the office to meet the easy-to-use and high-reliability requirement of the university’s core service department. For the dormitory students, the authentication system adopts the 802.1x and anti-private access design to meet the requirements of large number of devices as well as network management and control. For the families and teachers, the system adopts the PPPoE authentication to meet the recreational needs of the teachers and families after the purchase of wireless routers. For the wireless network, portal design is adopted for authentication, which does not require any client software and is compatible with a wide variety of mobile devices.

In terms of market demand, the high performance, reliability, openness, compatibility and flexibility of Ruijie’s Simplified Authentication Platform have provided users with an unprecedented experience. The exclusive web noise reduction technology can reduce the pop up time of the authentication page from a few seconds to milliseconds. The authentication speed of over 1000 devices per second allows tens of thousands of users to connect to the network every minute. The fully redundant architecture and over ten kinds of high-reliability technologies alleviate the workload of the maintenance staff. The platform is also fully compatible with switches and wireless AC/AP of other vendors such as Cisco, H3C, Huawei, ZTE and Juniper, which provides user investment protection and thereby attracts more university and campus network users. Ruijie’s Simplified Network Authentication Platform is now deployed in over 800 universities, providing services to 10 million teachers and students with different flexible Internet service charging methods based on user’s requirements. For example, the portal authentication adopted in Wuhan University, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Sichuan University, Shanghai University and Dalian University of Technology is compatible with the existing wired and wireless devices. The 802.1x authentication adopted in Fuzhou University, Nanjing Normal University, Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Ningxia Medical University and Ningxia University is compatible with the existing wired devices, whereas the LDAP authentication mode is adopted in Sun Yat-sen University, Yunnan Normal University, Shandong Jianzhu University, etc.

As the pioneers of new technological applications, some domestic universities have started to conceive the idea of smart campus and actively work on the idea. In the future plan of smart campus construction with Internet Plus, Ruijie’s Simplified Network Authentication Solution will continue to lead the China campus network authentication solution market with the scenario-based innovation concept.
