  • With greater coverage, increased connections and faster downloads, Griffith’s wireless network continues to provide an impressive service to the university community.

So far in 2013 the Griffith wireless network has:

  • Serviced 14.5 million connections by 44,665 different users using over 100,000 unique devices!
  • Enabled 340 terabytes to be downloaded by the wireless network and 68 terabytes uploaded.
  • Increased utilisation in popular wireless hotspots and identified future service improvements. Some popular hotspots:
    • Nathan and Mt Gravatt student residences (as an example, at Nathan residences a single wireless access point has had more than 50,000 connections and has transferred over 1.6 terabytes of data)
    • Nathan and Gold Coast libraries

This year, the wireless team has also upgraded 150 out of 326 access points identified in a survey completed by students and staff. These new wireless access points are 10 times faster and have a more intelligent response to interference and wireless spectrum load.

Furthermore, 18 Outdoor Wireless Mesh access points have now been installed and are operational. These special-built access points are installed on light poles and roofs of buildings to give a wide coverage area in outdoor locations, such as the Gold Coast’s tennis courts and The Pavilion (G32), Nathan’s seating areas near The Hub (N11) and plenty more areas.
