Enterprise Network Refresh Project Status

RIT is refreshing the University’s wireless network, doubling the number of access points to significantly improve performance and meet ever growing demands.

Project Start Date: May 2017

Anticipated Completion Date: December 2018

What does this means to you? Cable installation vendors will be laying cable and mounting wireless access points throughout all buildings on campus. They will need access to office areas, conference rooms, classrooms, labs, and residential areas. Following the install, the ITS Network Communications team will schedule an early morning changeover to the new wireless solution. Work will be performed around class schedules, final exams, and housing schedules to minimize the impact to the RIT community.
