Abilene Christian University has been on the forefront of integrating mobile technology and learning since launching a one-to-one mobile learning initiative in 2008. Today the university has over 900 access points that cover 7.1 million square feet and accept an average of 250,000 connections a day. Over the last six years, ACU has seen its fair share of challenges supporting a dynamic mobile environment and learned many lessons along the way.

In this session, we'll share what we've learned about developing our own mobile apps and supporting third-party apps for faculty and students; how to structure funding to balance costs while keeping our wireless infrastructure up to date; and how we meet WiFi challenges such as new standards, the effect of campus construction and remodeling on WLAN design and performance, and the growth and variety of device types we support.
