The Network Services team will be performing a wireless infrastructure upgrade to many of our student residence halls this summer.
Wireless was upgraded in Giblin-Kelly Hall as a proof-of-concept last March. During this pilot, a total of 37 new wireless access points and one additional back-end Cisco switch were placed in the dormitory to enhance and support the student increased wireless bandwidth demand.
In order to address the increasing demand for wireless capacity in the student residence halls, and to allow each student to leverage more wireless devices, a more comprehensive wireless design plan has been created. This plan calls for a wireless access point in every other student room with multiple access points in the hospitality areas.
The following student residence halls will be upgraded this summer using the same wireless design: Casey Hall, Condron Hall, Denis Edward Hall, Driscoll Hall, Fitch Hall, Hafey Hall, Lynett Hall, Martin Hall, McCourt Hall, McGowan House, GLM, Nevils Hall and Redington Hall.
