Wireless - Progress!

The University has moved a step closer to providing authorised staff and students with authenticated wireless access to the University’s computer network.

The University Information Management Systems Committee (UIMSC), at a special meeting held on Tuesday, 3 August 2004, endorsed the Wireless Working Party proposal for the staged introduction of a wireless network on the University's Bruce campus to serve staff and students.

Funds are now required for two VPN servers (one for staff and one for students), network infrastructure improvements to support rolling out wireless networks in the Division to support Languages, and base stations to cover areas in Building 5 and Building 20 used for Languages teaching and learning.
