No Wires, More Freedom

UBC has extended its enormous high-speed wireless network to its newest campus in Kelowna -- all academic and student services buildings at UBC Okanagan have been outfitted with transceivers so students, faculty and staff can connect to the Internet without plugging into the wall.

The first and largest wireless campus network in the region, the UBC Okanagan initiative is part of UBC’s University Networking Program, which completed Canada’s largest wireless campus network at UBC Vancouver last year.

“The completion of the wireless network is a great example of how UBC and OUC are working together to ensure a smooth transition,” says Gwen Zilm, Associate Vice President of Information Services at OUC.

“Wireless is an integral part of the e-Strategy Framework, and I am delighted to see it now poised to enable further innovation in learning, research and collaboration at UBC Okanagan,” says Ted Dodds, Associate Vice President of Information Technology at UBC.

For more information on how to access the UBC Okanagan wireless network, please visit www.wireless.ubc.ca/okanagan/.
