Students at Plymouth University now have access to one of the fastest internet connections at any UK higher education institution following a major upgrade.
CAE Technology Services spent the summer break overhauling the wired and wireless networks in more than 1,700 student rooms, and other communal areas across the city centre campus.
It means students in University-managed halls have instantly been able to access superfast networks through their desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile devices.
The work is part of a rolling investment programme by the University, and forms part of its commitment to provide students with an unrivalled student experience.
During the summer break CAE implemented over 400 Meraki Access Points, 12.5km of next generation cable and set up the Management Console to deliver the Wi-Fi service to the Halls of Residence. Thus giving students full access to the University’s suite of online resources on all their devices. It will also enable families and friends to access the internet anywhere on campus during visits.
