Provide fiscal and technology support resources to complete annual IT programs
Provide secure, robust, and ubiquitous wireless access throughout campus.
The Wireless Program is an annually funded program that addresses and replacement, upgrade, and saturation needs of our campus wireless network. We currently provide a complex wireless infrastructure that is composed of more than 1,200 access points, controllers, and other devices. For FY15 the program is allocated $100,000.
Annual wireless improvements are based on:
After combining these factors, a prioritized list of areas is targeted. IT then works with area Directors/Chairs to communicate upgrade plans and develop a schedule for implementation.
Note: Due, in large, to the limited access to classrooms, the upgrades are typically completed during the summer and winter break. After the target list is created, IT works with Department Chairs to identify the best timing for the replacements to occur.
