Regener Hall Existing coverage

Improving Wireless Infrastructure


Completed the wireless improvement projects for:

SRC Commons

Submitted the cost proposal to improve the coverage at the SUB

Upgraded the controller software to improve performance

Upgraded Airwave, to provide a more friendly user experience for planning and troubleshooting wireless issues

Continue to work with individual departments on how to address and resolve wireless coverage issues

Improving Wireless Infrastructure


Wireless Controllers update

Aruba 6000 controller chassis upgrade to Aruba 7240 controller, to provide improved throughput and capacity

The 7240 replaces a 6000 chassis with four controllers, and has the same AP capacity

Install and support 802.11 AC capable access points

Capable of using the 5GHz spectrum more efficiently allowing for speeds of up to 1.73Gbps to each client

Consolidate Lobo-WiFi and Lobo-SEC into one encrypted SSID for students, faculty, and staff

Use your Microsoft Active Directory account for wireless authentication

Continue to look for more ways to provide a seamless wireless experience for users, regardless of which device they use to connect to the network
