The new SPC Wi-Fi is used by students, staff and visitors, including users in the on-campus joint-use public libraries. Compared to fall 2012, the network’s usage already has increased 200-400 percent.
The previous, aging wireless network was retired in favor of state-of-the-art technology, which was designed with a focus on the student experience. Network speeds are now 10 times faster and the Wi-Fi now supports many new mobile devices including Androids, iPads and iPhones.
The new cloud-based system frees up valuable SPC resources to optimize and maintain the wireless systems. Network coverage areas also have increased substantially to cover indoor areas and major outside student gathering areas.
Once users log onto the network, they will not be required to re-enter their login information during subsequent visits because their computers will automatically recognize the network.
Update requires a one-time log-in
When you use SPC Wi-Fi for the first time after Friday, Nov. 1, you will be required to re-enter your login information. This only will be necessary one time to install a security update.
