An Operational Excellence Initiative
The UCSF Wireless roll out project is one of the Operational Excellence Initiatives; laid out by the Chancellor to improve the delivery of IT services UCSF-wide. This project will provide a reliable high-speed wireless network based on two main goals:
- Ubiquitous coverage
- Current wireless technology (802.11n)
Our existing coverage is being expanded to benefit the entire UCSF Community: faculty, staff, students and guests. This new service will be operated jointly by Campus and Medical Center IT units, and is actively being rolled out to UCSF buildings. The Operation Excellence (OE) committee on network technology has sponsored this initiative.
Project Manager: Sue Asay
Information on the active service and coverage areas is available on our Wireless Service page.
September 13 2012 - Implementaion of initial wireless rollout is coming to a close and the team is reviewing the results of the rollout and prepairing to install additional access points to improve density in areas with existing coverage and improve coverage in areas without good coverage.
August 27 2012 - Sites are under review and we are addressing single access point issues. Design work is underway to add additional access points to improve density and improve coverage areas.
