Networking, Wireless, IT Pros, Wireless, Requests to investigate or expand wireless coverage

An IT Professional reports that coverage may have gaps in particular areas of a building, and would like to look into expanding wireless coverage.

If an IT Pro contacts Technology Services to report signal strength issues, or asks about expanding wireless coverage in a building, the IllinoisNet Wireless group can work with the department to survey coverage and come up with a plan, and cost, to expand coverage.

The IT Pro will need to provide the following to
1) Building Name
2) Room(s), or Area to be investigated
3) Contact Information.

The wireless group will work with the IT Pro to conduct a survey of the desired location, and determine what is needed to provide the requested coverage for the area.

Once a survey is performed and work wishes to be continued the IT pro can submit an application form found here: IllinoisNet Wireless application form (online)

NOTES: These requests must come from the IT Pro. There will likely be a cost involved to increase wireless coverage. Please note that some areas of a building may not have a strong enough wireless signal for a reliable connection.  The area could be listed as a supported area of the building, or this could be a request to expand coverage to a new area.
