Wireless update

Just an update if you have been following our wireless rollout this year.

We have had over nine thousand authenticated clients using our wireless network simultaneously every day so far this week.

This is 80% up on the same time last year and 200 devices higher than our previous peak.

So far it seems to be going well, only seen one complaint recently. The main problem seems to be the time it takes to get even more of the campus and residences covered. We can survey a site and put in the cable routes and drawings, but it is getting held up with the buildings and estates departments while they allow the work to be done. I had a user, who is quite senior in one of the departments still waiting, offer to 'kick someone's ass' yesterday.

I will see if it makes any difference.
