More than networking...

Lately in class we have been attempting to go wireless. And I don't just mean any wireless. I mean wireless-with-a-controller type of wireless. Hard core, corporate, in your face, big wireless. We are using Aruba in the classroom and although it has been slow going, I think we have had successes. We actually had one access point up and running yesterday. Although the SSID broadcasted was humorous, it was taken down and re-sanitized so that it would be seen as "appropriate" on a college campus. We, in INT, are nothing but appropriate.

Speaking of SSIDs (aka wireless network names) and college campuses like this one, this is a note to you students who have nasty wireless labels on your access points. Everyone with a smartphone can see your label. And since a LOT of students have smartphones now-a-days, a LOT of people can see your label. Just saying...
