Public library system upgrades wireless service
Wednesday, September 2, 2015 6:14 pm
The Beaufort County Library System has completed a wireless network upgrade that will provide library patrons with faster, more reliable wireless service at all five of their locations.
"This improved service should create a very positive new experience for our patrons," said Ray McBride, library director. "Users will notice a major difference, with better, faster service that covers the entire branch library."
The newly upgraded system supports 802.11 (b/g/n) and is compatible with the latest in laptop, PDA and smartphone technology, allowing visitors to make the most of their wireless devices while enjoying the convenience and speed of an upgraded wireless network.
This project was completed in partnership with Beaufort County Management Information Systems.
Access to the upgraded wireless network at the Beaufort County Library System is available free of charge for everyone, and patrons can connect without the use of a library card or access code.
Patrons can also access the Library System's wireless network at all branches using their own devices, or enjoy free access to the Internet at any of the Library's desktop computers.
