Use of Wireless Communication Procedure - 61.12.04
College Policy Number/Title:
Howard Community College's (HCC) wireless network covers many areas of the campus and enables staff to connect to the Internet and other college network resources. The wireless network does not replace the college’s wired network but should be viewed as augmenting the wired network. Applications that require large amounts of bandwidth or are sensitive to changes in signal quality and strength, are not appropriate for wireless access. Wireless networking is appropriate for uses such as email and web browsing. Connection of personal wireless access points and routers is prohibited. Wireless transmissions should not be relied on as secure.
Due to the potential risk that may occur with wireless technology, employees must not use the wireless network to transmit or download regulated or confidential information to personal devices.
