Bowling Green State expands wireless capacity

Ohio’s Bowling Green State University is spending $4.7 million to upgrade existing wireless access points and install new ones on four campuses, university leaders told EdScoop. The upgrade, designed to address wireless networking equipment last refreshed in 2012, is planned to run through next summer. A network of approximately 2,800 access points could grow to 3,400 devices as the university’s technology office builds capacity. Chief Information Officer John Ellinger told EdScoop the network overhaul was also prompted by the increased number of Wi-Fi enabled devices students now bring to campus — including tablets, watches, gaming systems and computers. Emily Bamforth has the details.

He listed a series of measures his university uses to manage its computing environments, including single sign-on, two-factor authentication, risk assessments and data log analysis as some of the many options on the menu. Bermann said Michigan has been using single sign-on — with two-factor authentication — “for years,” and that the university’s also made recent investments in anti-phishing software and email filtering. Combined with Michigan’s use of a variety of operating systems, he said, the buffet is just getting bigger. Benjamin Freed has the story.
