On the university campus WLAN-AccessPoints/Hotspots may only be operated by the kiz. An access point is everything that accepts WLAN connections from end devices. Foreign WLAN access points will be removed by the kiz. The kiz has the radio sovereignty in the buildings of the University of Ulm!
Backgrounds, why foreign WLAN access points are not allowed:
- Security: A "non-kiz" access point connected to the Uninetz undermines the central protection mechanisms in the data network, as it represents a back door to the internal Uninetz.
- Technical aspects: WLAN access points operate in a limited, jointly used radio frequency range (radio channels), therefore the radio channels and the respective transmission powers must be coordinated for all access points used on the university campus.
If the WLAN coverage in a university area is not sufficient, please send a mail to our Helpdesk.
