Tech Tip: Faster CSULB Wireless Network Performance

BeachNet+ is now available for use by faculty and staff for a faster, more reliable, and more secure wireless network experience. Speeds are over 10 times as fast as the basic BeachNet service and data is protected by encryption.

BeachNet+ will replace the “campus-domain” wireless network which will be phased out in the coming months. Please connect to BeachNet+ soon if you have not already done so. While basic BeachNet will remain in service, its intended use is by guests and other campus community members.

Find out how to connect to BeachNet+ and discover the advantages BeachNet+ has for faculty and staff over basic BeachNet.
