International School of Monaco becomes home to Europe’s first Wi-Fi 7 campus network

In a landmark move that positions the International School of Monaco as a pioneer in Europe, the private education establishment recently teamed up with Huawei, the Chinese digital communication and technology giant, to build the first Wi-Fi 7 equipped campus-wide network on the continent. 

With a student body of more than 800 pupils and boasting a Top 10 ranking in the 2024 Spear’s School Index, the International School of Monaco (ISM) already has a lot going for it.  

Now the private education establishment has another feather in its cap; ISM is now home to Europe’s very first Wi-Fi 7 equipped campus. 

Featuring ultra-high-speed internet and lightning-fast downloads, the system is comprised of Huawei’s High-Quality 10 Gbps CloudCampus Solution with the Wi-Fi 7 AP AirEngine 8771-X1T and CloudEngine S5732-H multi-GE switches, as well as modular deployment and smart operations and maintenance features.

“We use Huawei’s High-Quality 10 Gbps CloudCampus Solution to provide full Wi-Fi 7 network coverage in classrooms, canteens and auditoriums,” explains Frédéric Mondou, Director of IT at ISM. “Teachers and students can stay connected anytime and anywhere. With Wi-Fi 7, the latest generation of Wi-Fi technology, we are ensuring our investment for the next 10 years.” 

The system was integrated into the school in just two short months and is now fully operational. 


“Huawei’s technological advancements extend into its product innovations, particularly in Wi-Fi 7, which features state-of-the-art smart antenna, converged scheduling and other ground-breaking technologies,” say Huawei representatives in a press release. “These innovations significantly enhance network performance, bandwidth and user concurrency while improving network stability and coverage.” 

According to the Chinese tech conglomerate, “A prime example of Huawei’s Wi-Fi 7 prowess in action is the transformation of the International School of Monaco (ISM) into Europe’s first Wi-Fi 7 campus. This upgrade has enabled seamless, high-speed online and interactive learning experiences, setting a new benchmark for educational institutions worldwide.”
