Drexel Goes Wireless: Leading U.S. University Creates Fully Wireless Cyber Campus
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
In 1997 Drexel began implementing its first CyberZone -- an area of continuous wireless network connectivity. Begun as a pilot project in the central library, CyberZones quickly proved to be both popular and practical. In 2000 Drexel became the first major university to implement a campus-wide, high-speed wireless network for all indoor and outdoor areas, including public spaces such as local train platforms and nearby cafes and restaurants. This presentation describes the technical, political and educational issues of implementing a 60 acre wireless network infrastructure in a major U.S. city center.
