SAC gets Wi-Fi Hot Spots

The Office of Technology Services has announced that District Information Technology Services (ITS) department has upgraded the San Antonio College wireless network. The upgrades come as a result of student, faculty and staff feedback and the general technology refresh cycle. 

The upgrade will provide several benefits including: 

  • Increased opportunity to use wireless network. 
  • Improved wireless experience,  
  • Enhanced connectivity speed, and  
  • More users can use wireless at once. 

Alamo Colleges has continuously upgraded their wireless equipment to provide better service to staff, faculty and students. Click here for more information on wireless @ SAC.

Alamo Colleges installed its first wireless equipment in 2006 using the ACCD Bond Capital Improvement Program funds. The original project placed approximately 200 wireless access points at San Antonio College.  

During the past few years, due to growth in mobile devices and video streaming, wireless usage at San Antonio College has increased several folds. The San Antonio College Wi-Fi network has been improved in several ways. 

In September 2013, 14 access points were added to improve coverage in external gathering areas. The number of available IP address has been increased to allow for more wireless devices to be on the wireless network at any given time. 

In February of this year, ITS initiated a project to upgrade all the wireless access point devices across San Antonio College to the newly available 802.11 AC Protocol. The 802.11AC is a new generation of high-throughput, 5 GHz Wi-Fi network. This new environment offers more than double the bandwidth of our current wireless standard. The project involved configuration and replacement of 240 wireless access points around San Antonio College. The project was successfully completed in early April.  

To continue offering reliable Wi-Fi access, both District Information Technology Services and College Office of Technology Services (OTS) will continue to assess evolving user needs and develop plans to support the robust growth in mobile devices and Wi-Fi traffic.  Click here to view a map of the WiFi hotspots on campus.

Feel free to test the wireless connectivity at San Antonio College and share your experience. 

If you have questions or feedback, call OTS at (210) 486-0777 or send an email to sac-helpdesk@alamo.edu. A WiFi FAQ can also be found here.
