WIRELESS NETWORKING GUIDELINES
Computing and Telecommunications Services (CaTS) recognizes the increasing importance of wireless networking to the campus community. Wireless connectivity utilizes airspace as a network media. CaTS is responsible for ensuring the network performance, integrity, and security of wireless airspace. For more information using the university's wireless network connection, see the Wireless Connect website.
CaTS is responsible for the installation of all wireless (802.11) equipment for the university. The equipment which is currently being deployed supports the 802.11n standard in both the 2.4GHz and 5.0 GHz spectrum. Clients must be aware of the possible interference from other wireless services that also use this range. Devices may include cordless phones, microwaves, and other wireless devices. Any of these devices which are installed on the campus and interfere with the campus wireless network must be removed.
