expands DLSU-M’s wireless network
give the DLSU community better access to the Internet and
the campus network, the Information
Technology Center installed wireless network equipment
in various study halls of the University, including the library,
the Marilen Gaerlan Conservatory, and the ground floor of
the Gokongwei building.
the wireless network equipment, students and faculty who own
laptops can access Internet information at any time. Connection
is available within a range of five kilometers. For initial
access, the user has to install a network card in his personal
computer. This network card can be borrowed from the library.
ITC Director Samuel Mallare said more wireless network equipment
would be installed at the Velasco Hall, the St. Miguel ground
floor open area and the SJ lobby and back area. He added that
this project is in tandem with the campus-wide network cabling
project. The maximum information transfer rate using wireless
network is 10 mb per second. On the other hand, wired PCs
have a maximum transfer rate of 100 mb per second.
Mallare said ITC would continue to add more network cables
for wired network access. This school year, a comprehensive
cabling project will be done in the Gokengwei building.
Cabling has been completed at the SPS Building, the M. Gaerlan
Conservatory, the College of Education, Registrar’s Office,
and John Hall. A similar project is ongoing at the William
Hall, SJ, Velasco, and Gokongwei buildings. The target completion
date for these places is February 2002. For the STRC, St.
Miguel Hall and the library, the target date is on or before
