With the development of network technology and the continuous reduction of the price of network products, many colleges and universities have begun to build network platforms and set up their own campus network.

The wireless part of the campus network is mainly designed for some old-fashioned buildings, dormitories and large conference rooms that cannot be wired. This part of the network products is mainly based on wireless APs.
Due to the relatively large topology of the campus network, we have not detailed every detail here, but the basic structure of the campus network is outlined. The following figure shows the basic network topology of a campus network:
