Poly Canyon Village and Cerro Vista Apartments
Each apartment is equipped with at least one wired Ethernet port in every room, as well as two Aruba 93H wireless access points (shown above), one in the living room located near the TV cable outlet, and a second in one of the bedrooms. The access points provide SecureMustangWireless Internet coverage for the apartment and each Aruba 93H access point is furnished with four Ethernet ports.

Rogue Access Points
Some students in previous years tried to solve the dilemma of only having access to internet by Ethernet by bringing their own networking hardware (such as switches, hubs, wireless access points, etc.). The Cal Poly Responsible Use Policy strictly forbids the modification of the state network (such as adding switches, hubs, wireless access points, etc.). In addition to it being against state law, adding networking hardware disrupts the operations of the residential network. As we mentioned before, our network is extremely complex. It is not like a simple home network. The presence of these unauthorized devices can actually cause network outages in entire buildings.
