Campus Wireless Upgrade Expands Coverage, Increases Connection Speeds, and Enhances Performance
For many of us here at WSU Spokane, the first thing we do after arriving on campus is to connect to the wireless and check schedules, messages, or access content on the web. This ability to connect and send or receive information has a big impact on the entire campus population. Based on your feedback about this critical technology, WSU Spokane ITS has responded by implementing a new wireless infrastructure throughout campus that is nearly 10 times faster, is more secure, reduces environmental and operating costs, and expands the areas where wireless is available.
The campus wireless infrastructure upgrade is a major investment that began as a direct response to comments from the 2016 and 2017 TechQual+ IT surveys. Results from the 2017 survey showed 28% of student respondents and 19% of total respondents named adequate Wi-Fi coverage, reliability, and capacity as the top priority. After addressing the most problematic areas cited in the surveys, ITS is now expanding wireless coverage to increase our ability to connect and communicate. Read the full article here.
