With more activities and functions held at the Garden, there is a demand for WiFi connectivity at this location.  After exploring various products and carrying out on-site feasibility studies and tests, ITS selected and installed a pair of long haul WiFi outdoor Access Points at the balcony on the higher floor level of the Jockey Club Tower.   These two outdoor Access Points have already been put into production use. 

Three SSID (Service Set Identifier) are broadcasted at these two outdoor Access Points.  Users at the Centennial Garden may connect to the campus network via the encrypted WiFi channel “Universities WiFi or eduroam, or via the open web portal access HKU Open WiFi (requires no prior configuration), with their mobile devices and notebooks.
