Cardiff Uni gets UK's largest WLAN

66 buildings. Three square miles. More than 1,300 access points.

66 buildings. Three square miles. More than 1,300 access points. That's some serious infrastructure. Cardiff University's wireless LAN, which uses Trapeze's technology, will service 30,000 students, 5,000 staff and guests, and will apparently be the largest WLAN in the country. Blimey!

On an unrelated note, some amusing/startling thoughts from the CIO of a very big power firm this morning at the Wireless Event. Enthusing perhaps a little too much about the wonders of flexible work/life balance etc etc, the CIO claimed that his "Martini workers" (daft management-speak for workers who can work from anywhere) "could be drinking real martinis - we don't care as long as they are doing their work".

I'll assume he was kidding, but the joke would be a lot funnier if if his company didn't run nuclear power stations.
