ITU's Wireless LAN Facilities for Delegates

ITU provides IEEE 802.11a, g and n wireless LAN coverage throughout its premises. Access information is available onsite and at the ITU IS Service Desk (+41 22 730 6666). For meetings that are held at CICG, please use the wireless LAN that is provided by the venue.
 
In big meeting rooms we encourage Delegates:

  1.  Use 802.11n or 802.11a on the 5.2 GHz band as it offers many channels resulting in higher bandwidth per user;
  2.  Use wired Ethernet connection whenever it is available;
  3.  Please disable the wireless card when not in use. Wireless cards send out a lot of beacons even when not in use, occupying significant bandwidth that is valuable for those who are using it;
  4.  Not to use ad-hoc (or peer-to-peer) mode as they will interfere with the site’s wireless infrastructure.

Please note that as 802.11b devices slowdown 802.11g and 802.11n devices, the support for 802.11b is only available outside the big meeting rooms in ITU and CICG. Delegates may borrow 802.11abg PCMCIA cards from the ITU reception or IS Service Desk if required.
 
When buying a laptop or a wireless card, please ensure they are "Wi-Fi compatible 802.11abgn" Good wireless performance can only be guaranteed for devices that support 802.11a and 802.11n on the 5.2 GHz band. Please check that your card’s model number is mentioned at http://www.wi-fi.com . Note that cards labeled 802.11bgn do not support 5.2 GHz.
