Wireless Options at DTSD

  • We currently have one Physical wireless networks at DTSD: Ruckus. Within these two networks, we provide three SSID’s (Service Set Identification);  (also known as logical wireless networks)  SSID’S meet the IEEE 802.11 standards set for wireless communication protocols that will uniquely identify any given wireless network.

    We have three different (SSID’S) Wireless networks users may see when on our campus.  
       1.    DTSD (Secured)
       2.    Guest (Unsecured)

    Our main SSID is DTSD secured wireless. This network requires a network login credential authentication to gain access. This network will provide access for staff and students to district provided network resources such as printing, network storage, email, departmental resources saved and shared on the DTSD network.

    The Guest wireless network is an open unsecured network, which does not require authentication, but does prompt all uses to agree to and sign an Acceptable Use agreement. The Guest wireless network will be seen in all buildings.

    The purpose for this unsecured wireless network is to provide access for those who bring their own devices to our campus and are granted access to our internet connection. This SSID only provides internet access for guests and non-district owned devices. No other network resources are available from this unsecured wireless networks. This network also has a scaled down bandwidth to limit the amount of data that can be uploaded or downloaded to and from the third party devices. This scaling is done to ensure the major portion of our network bandwidth to the internet is available to District staff and students for accomplishing assignments and classwork assignments.

    Third party devices include: Smartphones, iPods, tablet devices, and laptops that staff and students may bring on campus in accordance with district Acceptable Use Policy 815.1 for technology use during the school day.
