Wirelessly into the Future

20 Years of WLAN at Münster University

Wireless internet access has become an essential part of everyday university life. It opens up many possibilities in study, research and teaching and is not without reason the most used IT service at the WWU, along with the email service. It's hard to believe that the technology was only introduced at WWU 20 years ago – and a lot has happened since then.

Next Milestone: sciebo Reaches 200,000 Users

Since sciebo is perfectly suited for digital work, the university cloud has been able to gain more fans in Corona times: The magic number of 200,000 users has now been cracked - an increase of about 70,000 within a year. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 4 more institutions have added sciebo to their repertoire, so that the service is now offered at 19 universities of applied sciences, 13 universities, one research center and one university library center. Within 6 years, sciebo has become an integral part of the North Rhine-Westphalian higher education landscape and exemplifies networking on a wide variety of levels.
