Why Go Wireless? Freedom. Mobility. Convenience. That's why . . .

Using wireless connections enables laptops to remain portable without sacrificing the advantages that come with being connected to a network. Easily move about within a wireless area—from office, to classroom, or meeting—and pull up files via Penn State Wireless.

Although wireless networks cannot fully substitute traditional higher-speed wired connections on campus, they can be convenient for simple applications like email exchanges, web browsing, presentations, and file sharing.

These advantages—freedom, mobility, convenience, and access to shared networked information, without looking for a place to plug in—combine data connectivity with user mobility.
