  • Title ResNet (Student Hostel Network) Upgrade

    31 December 2016


    ResNet (Student Hostel Network) is managed by the respective student hostel management with technical support from ITSC. The network equipment in the following student hostels was introduced in 2009 and requires an upgrade to meet a high speed connection need in rooms.

      • Chung Chi College Student Hostels
      • New Asia College Student Hostels
      • United College Student Hostels
      • Shaw College Student Hostels
      • Postgraduate Halls
      • Madam S.H. Ho Hostel for Medical Students
      • International House
    With advances in technology, an in-room wifi service and an enhanced backend connection will be introduced this summer to provide a faster and more reliable Internet connection at these student hotels. 
    Serving User Groups Students

    This upgrade will greatly improve user experience to enjoy a high speed and reliable Internet connection with
    1.       A better In-room wifi solution 
    Under current wifi setup in student hostels, the speed is 300Mbps for 4-6 rooms shared use. And the new in-room wifi is 300Mbps for one room in which connection speed has greatly been improved.

    2.       Enhanced backend connection 
    A significant improvement from 1 x 1 Gigabit Ethernet link (current) to 2 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet (new) links connect from student hostels to the campus network. And the two new links are for both eliminating bottle neck and backup purpose.

    • Mar 2016: Price negotiation with suppliers
