Project Progress

Thanks to the investment of university and System leadership, the Next Generation Aggie Network will put Texas A&M on track to expand our impact and increase innovation. The network will be faster, stronger and more secure.

On Track for the Future

Coupled with long-term, sustainable funding and service delivery strategies — the new network will provide a modern, resilient and secure research and education network to better meet the future demands of Texas A&M educators, researchers and students.

To minimize impact on teaching or learning, project work is planned around the academic calendar.

Project Update

Strong progress continues with wireless signal strength surveys and new fiber installed in more than 240 buildings— 66% of buildings on campus! The first Zone kickoff meeting is scheduled for January 2023, and high-level network segmentation plans and automation design are complete.

Better Wi-Fi. Coming to a Building Near You.

Improving Wi-Fi is a top priority for the Next-Gen Network and wireless signal strength surveys are underway for each campus building.

When the project is complete, wireless access points across campus will more than double and the projected Wi-Fi coverage is much brighter!
