As promised IT Service would like to keep you up to date with any developments and changes that are happening across campus.
Tomorrow we have datapath on campus, they will be running new fibre optics to link all the buildings together increasing the network speed. This is the first stage of the network infrastructure update. The whole process will take about a month to complete. Once this is done we can then install the new switches which link the buildings.

Soon this will be a thing of the past where you have to enter proxy details into your our device to gain internet access. We are testing some new software to allow a seamless connection to the internet and hope to roll this out before Christmas.

We would like to keep you informed with any project that we are currently working on so you have an idea of what is happening in the background and how this will affect you.
Did you spot someone walking around with a tripod and a laptop? This was an external company performing a wireless survey across the whole of campus so that we know where we need to improve coverage.
How will this affect you?
You will be able to bring in your own devices and use your phones anywhere in College. Alongside this we are also going to change our current proxy system. This will mean that you will no longer have to spend an age inputting details to get connected to the College Wi-Fi, apart from your college user credentials, will be a seemly connection.
