Campus wireless upgraded

Thanks to 2017-2018 Student Tech Fee funds, major WiFi improvements were recently finished in three of the most active student spots on campus: the VanCougar Café in the Dengerink building, the Firstenburg Student Commons, and the Library. Over Spring Break, Vancouver IT installed new network switches and 60 new wireless Access Points (APs), allowing up to 10 times the wireless capacity as before (100 Mb to 1 Gb) and shorter download times. Some of the access points that were replaced will also be redistributed to other locations to help increase wireless capacity across campus.
