IET Continues to Support Wireless Communications

The UC Davis campus continues to experiment with wireless (802.11) networking. Numerous departments have installed individual access points in various office locations, and IET has installed 50 access points with centralized authentication in various public and department locations. However, few services have been developed to meet the increasing needs of department wireless users. In particular, individual and group/conference guest Internet access has surfaced as a service need that could benefit from centralized, managed support.
