In the campus of Kanazawa University, we started to provide wireless network services. For the purpose to keep our information security, our wireless network system requires authentication for each user according to IEEE 802.1X, and the recodes of network connections are kept for each session with the identifier of the user. Wireless stations are placed mainly at classrooms which classes in general education curriculum are held in, and the authentication servers are used by the other department. The locations which the wireless stations are installed include classrooms that accommodate more than 100 students because this system is arranged to be used for e-Learning styled classes. So that, good throughput enough for smooth progress of the classes even though several tens students are connected it at the same time. In this paper, we show the outline of our system, and discuss about the efficiency of it under much crowded conditions.
