Lincoln Goes Wireless

Lincoln has contracted with Edu-Tek, Inc. of Woodstock, GA. to design and implement a wireless Local-Area Network (LAN) for the main campus. This network, based on technology from Vivato, Inc. , will be in place by the end of September. The network will provide wireless access to university servers and the Internet, in the Library, all residences, classrooms, labs, office spaces, the Cafeteria, and all green spaces.

Wireless network cards will be provided by the IT Department for all current University laptop computers, and for desktop computers in buildings where wired networking is not available. For faculty, staff, and students bringing their own equipment to campus, wireless cards will be available for resale, but in most cases any wireless network card supporting the 802.11b standard will work. Some specific computer security practices will be recommended and some will be required on the new wireless LAN.
