Original Wireless Network

The original Caltech wireless network (Beavernet, Guest, and Registered) was first implemented more than a decade ago and is still in use today while we transition to newer wireless networks (Caltech Secure and Caltech Visitor).

For details on the wireless refresh project, including a rollout schedule, please click here. Buildings that have been converted to the new wireless network are noted on the rollout schedule, as well as through building signage.
