Expanding Notre Dame's Wireless Network
The use of the campus wireless network has changed drastically in the decade since it was first implemented. Instead of a single laptop, a person often brings one or more laptops, mobile phones, tablets, televisions, printers, and gaming systems to campus and expects them all to work on the wireless network simultaneously.
With the continued growth of wireless-enabled devices like watches and other wearable technology, Notre Dame needed to drastically improve wireless service in order to provide the service our community expects.
During the 2013-2014 year, the networking team nearly doubled the capacity of wireless service on campus, especially in key areas like the residence halls and the Hesburgh Library.
