ITS received funds from the administration in FY17 to expand wireless network service in university administrative and academic buildings. This project will comprehensively address incomplete wireless coverage caused by historically ad-hoc deployment and inconsistent wireless service caused by aging infrastructure.
The work began in the last quarter of FY17 and is projected to be completed by the end of FY18. We maintain a table that lists the project schedule and status: its.uconn.edu/uconn-wireless-service-expansion. A building is considered complete only after ITS performs a post-implementation review that verifies 100% coverage.
