This week we measured 40.000 simultaneous Wi-Fi network users, the highest amount ICT Services has ever measured in one day. A milestone to be proud of! We have access to a Wi-Fi network so advanced, it is able to accommodate such exceptionally high volumes of simultaneous users.
The Wi-Fi network of AUAS and UvA are managed and maintained by ICT Services. With that, ICT Services provides, and takes care of, one of the largest state-of-the-art Wi-Fi networks within the Netherlands. That is quite impressive, especially considering that the network is spread out over 59 buildings and 342 different floors.
ICT Services is one of the four joint services operating for both AUAS and UvA. It consists of approximately 280 people. Besides Wi-Fi, we also provide servers, data storage, IT architecture and consultancy, supporting educational services such as Canvas, Brightspace and SIS and we deliver tailored services for faculties and extraordinary applications.
