Harvard Wireless Improvement Project & Connection (SSID) Information
(January 2, 2014) HUIT Network Services’ Wireless Improvement Project completed the replacement/upgrade of all existing FAS campus based wireless access points in April of 2013.
Central Departments wireless access point replacement has begun.
The focus of the Wireless Improvement Project remains dormitories and classrooms with known service issue sites receiving priority.
All Yard Dorm buildings except Matthews Hall have completed gap augmentation.
After extensive planning and coordination with Harvard Environmental Health and Safety Group, FAS Physical Resources and the wiring vendors HUIT engages, the project is able to take advantage of the cabling installation opportunity the Holiday Recess/Break provides. As of this update these buildings are undergoing wiring installation:
Matthews Hall Eliot Hall (Cabot House)
Bernard Hall Briggs Hall
Whitman Hall New Quincy
Leverett Towers Mather House
Lowell House (Limited Timeline)
Eliot House (Limited Timeline)
Kirkland House (Limited Timeline)
The “(Limited Timeline)” noted buildings could not provide the time required to install all identified cabling during the holiday recess/break and a best effort installation within the time available will be executed with follow up scheduled later.
Gap survey scheduling is underway for;
Adams House 10-20 DeWolfe St.
Apley Court 3 Sacramento St.
1705 Mass Ave. Child Hall
Conant Hall Richards Hall
HUIT will continue to seek wiring installation scheduling to improve service to the community while minimizing impact to building occupants. This is the biggest challenge to the effort.
