TAMULink Wireless

Requests for wireless service in the Division of IT-maintained building networks must be engineered and provided by Texas A&M Division of Information Technology. Requests for wireless service within departmental networks (those not maintained by the Division of IT) must have their Radio Frequency (RF) footprints and authentication methods approved. No departmental wireless coverage is allowed outside a building. There may be an engineering fee depending  on the amount of work necessary to review the departmental wireless network proposal. If a departmental network is housed in a building shared with another department, then the Division of IT must install, maintain and operate the wireless network. Proposals or requests for information regarding departmental wireless networks should be sent via email to consult@tamu.edu.

Requests for wireless service for stand-alone networks (no access to campus or Internet) must be approved by the Division of IT as to RF footprint and addressing, channel assignments and security. No wireless coverage is allowed outside a building and overlap between wireless cells will be arbitrated by the Division of IT. Proposals or requests for information regarding stand-alone wireless networks should be sent via email to consult@tamu.edu.

If an unauthorized access point anywhere on the network is located, the Division of IT will attempt to contact the owner(s) and direct them to cio.tamu.edu to review current policies and practices for network installations. We will ask them to remove the device and let them know their port will be deactivated if the device is found again. In the event an access point is found and no owner can be located, we will disable the port, power off the device and contact the NIM-registered owner of the IP being used.
