Wi-Fi on campus

CLONMEL -- Multimedia degreee student Alan McGuire explains why wireless Internet access is a smart move for colleges. It's a matter of speed--no queues for seats at workstations when you can open up your laptop and post away.

One of Wi-Fi’s main advantages is that, compared to traditional networking, it is relatively straightforward to configure.

Many campuses are now catching on to this advanced means of communicating. It allows their students to a lot more access to the facilities. For instance, students that can avail of this technology do not need access to a lab, they simply have to bring their laptop into the canteen and go on line. This eliminates any chance of students being without access to a PC.

McGuire envisions username and password access for students. At a technology college, Wi-Fi should be part of the standard operating environment.
