Quest Enables Wireless Networking at University of Nevada, Reno Students and Faculty

Reno, NV: April 12, 2004 — As part of the University of Nevada, Reno’s goal to provide both students and faculty with a premium educational experience, UNR will deploy a campus-wide wireless network for the university beginning this spring. The university will deploy the network in phases for immediate usage and minimum campus disruption, and expects to be running the wireless network at full capacity by the fall of 2004.

As a necessary precursor to the deployment of the wireless technology, the university selected Quest, a technology management company, to perform wireless site-assessments and surveys of twenty-one campus buildings to determine optimal placement of each wireless access point.

"Quest’s wireless assessment provides us a detailed survey of our campus and the exact placement and positioning of the access points necessary for optimal wireless coverage – information crucial to the successful implementation of our campus-wide wireless network," said Jeff Springer, University of Nevada, Reno, IT Manager. "Quest’s work will essentially dictate the overall success of our wireless deployment."

The wireless network will be capable of providing access to Internet services that previously required a wired connection. The university’s free service to students and faculty will allow anyone with a wireless access device, such as a laptop computer or PDA, mobile access to services such as electronic mail, the campus portal, and the Internet, from anywhere on campus, including outdoor areas.

Quest offers a growing portfolio of professional services, technology products, fiber-optics, wireless and cabling, maintenance contract management and technical staffing. Quest specializes in providing long-term, technology solutions to corporate, government and education markets.
