Wireless Connectivity

At the heart of any BYOD experience is connectivity to the internet. Every public high school in NSW has been equipped with a robust and centrally managed wireless network to allow staff and students to connect. The DEC wireless network installed in high schools only operates on the 802.11n 5Ghz standard. Devices with 802.11a/b/g or 802.11n 2.4Ghz only will not be able to connect.

In NSWDEC that connectivity will be through individual user portal passwords. The documents below describe that process.
