MSU technology upgrades

sateliteGWERU - The Midlands State University has sunk a number of boreholes to ease water challenges and installed wireless Network technology to enable 24hour access to the Internet, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Ngwabi Bhebhe has said.

The water and power situation on campus remains unsatisfactory. Gigantic moves in the sphere of Public Private Partnership have greatly eased the situation through the sinking of boreholes as well as installation of generators respectively. We, however, note with regret that sometimes the public underestimates the extent to which universities have gone towards self-reliance, he said.

Bhebhe said the university installed the Wireless Network Technology to enable users of personal computers and laptops to have 24hour access to the network and Internet while working within a radius of 1.5 km of the connection. He said the university had also installed the Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite connection.

The university is now in the process of perfecting the technical issues to do with the efficiency of the Wider Area Network, said the Professor. The Midlands State University operates at the former Gweru Teachers College campus. The University was opened in 2001.
