An upgrade to the university's wireless network infrastructure is underway with the introduction of WiFi 6e. The wireless upgrade will update the technology used for connectivity across campuses. The wireless upgrade addresses increasing demand for high performance and secure wireless to support learning, research and university administration as the university continues to grow.
After the upgrade, the wireless network will benefit from:
- Faster Speeds: WiFi 6e is designed to deliver quicker downloads, improved streaming, and lag-free online experiences.
- Higher Capacity: With an expanded spectrum, WiFi 6e can simultaneously accommodate a significantly higher number of connected devices, making it ideal for our densely populated campus environment.
- Reduced Interference: Operating in the less congested 6 GHz frequency band, WiFi 6e minimizes interference for a more reliable and consistent connection.
- Improved User Experience: Users will receive an improved wireless experience with the ability to securely connect devices.
