Building the Wireless Campus
Gerraughty, James F.; Shanafelt, Michael E.
Association of Small Computer Users in Education (ASCUE), 38th, Myrtle Beach, SC, June 12-16, 2005
This prototype is a continuation of a series of wireless prototypes which began in August 2001 and was reported on again in August 2002. This is the final year of this prototype. This continuation allowed Saint Francis University's Center of Excellence for Remote and Medically Under-Served Areas (CERMUSA) to refine the existing WLAN for the Saint Francis University (SFU) campus and attempted to show if computer modeling software was a legitimate tool for designing wireless campuses. The prototype was divided into two distinct divisions. The first portion of the prototype consisted of verifying that the access points were located in optimal locations on the SFU campus. Previous wireless prototypes consisted of doing base wiring of the SFU campus. The second current portion of the prototype consisted of wiring the greenspaces of the campus, and testing "leaky wire" antenna technology as a viable option for indoor wiring applications. For the 2003-2004 funding year, the testing of the greenspaces on the SFU campus was the main thrust of the research. Additionally, experiments were done with various wireless technologies.
