Harvard Wireless Improvement Project & Connection (SSID) Information
(April 28, 2014) HUIT Network Services’ Wireless Improvement Project completed the replacement/upgrade of all existing FAS campus based wireless access points in April of 2013.
The focus of the Wireless Improvement Project remains dormitories and classrooms with known service issue sites receiving priority.
All Yard Dorm buildings 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 took advantage of the cabling installation opportunity provided by the Holiday Recess/Break. These buildings were completed;
Matthews Hall Eliot Hall (Cabot House)
Bernard Hall Briggs Hall
Whitman Hall Leverett Towers
These buildings are were partially completed over the Holiday Recess/Break;
Lowell House (Limited timeline) Eliot House (Limited timeline)
Kirkland House (Limited timeline) New Quincy (Cable path challenges)
The partially completed dorm buildings are currently scheduled to take advantage of the post commencement pre-summer school period to complete the wiring and deployment of coverage gap wireless access points.
Gap survey scheduling is underway for;
Adams House 10-20 DeWolfe St.
Gap surveys completed;
3 Sacramento St. 1705 Mass Ave.
Child Hall Conant Hall
Richards Hall Perkins 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.
