Wireless Device Policy
Since any technology making the use of the 2.4 or 5-gigahertz frequency range could interfere with the University wireless systems either in place or planned, it is essential that an impact study be made prior to purchase or installation. Information Technology needs to be involved on any of the following:
- Any device transmitting using the 802.11a, 802.11b or 802.11g wireless standard must be facilitated through the Information Technology department.
- Cordless phones using the 2.4 -gigahertz frequency need to be coordinated with Information Technology to minimize interference with any wireless network devices.
