BioSci Gets High-Speed Wireless

In partnership with Biological Sciences (Bio Sci), NACS recently completed the installation of¬†UCInet Mobile Access¬†wireless networking in McGaugh Hall using a new higher speed wireless network technology called 802.11g (“11g”). This is the first 11g service installed at UCI.

The 11g technology can perform up to five times as fast as the 802.11b (“11b”) wireless technology used at UCI until now. Another advantage of 11g is that it is “backward compatible” with 11b network cards, so computers that have worked at other UCI wireless sites will still work at BioSci (albeit at the slower speed). NACS will soon be installing 11g in Steinhaus Hall.
