ICAirnet and ICAirnet-Secure Wireless Update Comment from pyoung1 on 09/11/2013
So, when should we expect to see improvements over what we currently have for Wi-Fi access? If the plan you mentioned is going to be investigated this semester, should we expect that when return for the Spring that there will be some kind of improvement? Or will that take another semester to go through purchasing and planning?

Honestly, this should have been anticipated - obviously there are not enough computers for everyone on campus to be able to use when they need to during peak hours, so they are going to turn to their personal devices. If they are in class, and they want to try and make a connection to something the professor is saying, they will use their personal device. It is a frustration that students don't need piled on top of everything else, and my only hope is that the upgrade process moves quickly, and does not get tied up with red tape.

Thanks for this feedback. We don't have a time estimate yet. We expect that this
remediation will be costly and until we know more facts are unable to commit to
a timetable. Apogee did work during spring 2013 on the residential hall network
wireless system. We had hoped that that work would help alleviate some
pressure but demand has exponentially increased in a very short amount of
time. I am sorry that I am being vague; I understand your frustration and want to
assure you that we are actively working on this problem.
