Wireless Policy

These are the general rules and policies for wireless communications at UL Lafayette in the 2.4 and 5 GHz Unlicensed Bands:

  • Wireless Network: Wireless data network access and services are subject to the same rules and policies that govern other computer and network services at UL Lafayette.

  • Radio Interference: Because of a dependence on a scarce-shared resource, radio communication is subject to additional rules concerning interference and shared use. Off-campus interference may not be controllable and may prevent the UL Lafayette wireless network from operating.

  • Network Policies: To successfully deploy an 802.11b/g/a network, it is required that all equipment operating in the 2.4 and 5 GHz spectrum be carefully positioned, installed and configured. Information Media Networks is responsible for the design and deployment of all wireless access points connecting to the UL Lafayette network.

  • Interference: To avoid potential interference with the UL Lafayette wireless network, users and departments are not allowed to install their own wireless access points or wireless networks on campus.

  • Installation: To minimize interference at UL Lafayette, any purchase or installation of equipment that uses the same unlicensed frequency bands of the UL Lafayette wireless system, inside of University buildings or on University property must be coordinated through Information Media Networks and Information Technology Security as outlined in the Wireless Communication Policy section of the Information Technology Policy (this includes, but is not limited to, wireless video, cordless telephones, cordless RF keyboards and mice, Bluetooth devices etc.).

  • User Responsibility: Users are responsible for obtaining the correct computer hardware and software to access the UL Lafayette wireless network.
