WSU's R15m Wi-Fi

24 February 2014, 15:04

WSU’S R15 MILLION WI-FI CONNECTION

Walter Sisulu University’s campuses boast a R15 million Wi-Fi installation by the Information Communication Technology department across the university’s 13 campus sites.

The project will see the incremental installation of WI-FI hot spots in the university libraries, common rooms and residences.

WSU’s Solution architect and technician, James Nengomashe says an initiative was improvised to roll out this Wi-Fi solution in phases and proceed along those lines as funds become available. Currently Wi-Fi is available at the following sites:

·       Buffalo City Campus:

o   College Street library and foyer and 2 Lecture halls, Potsdam Library, and new office block.

o   Chiselhurst library

·       Butterworth library

·       NMD Sasol library,  Medical student library, and 24 hour reading room

·       Zamukulungisa library and 24 hour study room

 “The student residences will internally have the necessary hot spots and inter-building network backbone connectivity to the WSU network,” said Nengomashe.

Nengomashe also added that the Wi-Fi implementation has taken a while due to the University’s financial situation.

A student, Ndwendwe Sigcobile commented on the University’s Facebook page saying “Yes, the Wi-Fi installation has helped a lot and has improved learning conditions because the study centres are often over crowded.”

Healing wounds neccesary

I support this motion of healing wounds, not because it is done by Afrikaaners who are all accused of be racist and all that but simply because we need to now unite as South Africans and start healing wounds of those who fought for freedom regardless of their race. Read more...
