SVI provides users with a wireless network for joining the greater SVI network. This network provides access to the file server, printing, the internet, and any other server resources. This network is to be used for users' SVI owned computers and devices and can include personal devices such as smart phones, personal laptops, and tablets.
Users must ensure that their personal devices are not inadvertently running peer to peer applications (such as torrent software) when they connect them to the network.
This network is filtered for malicious software and all downloads (viewing a web page is considered a download) are scanned for viruses and logged.
No other filtering is performed by SVI, however the University of Melbourne and AARNET (the University's "ISP") may perform filtering at their discretion.
As per SVI policy, IT staff will only provide support for SVI owned devices - for personally owned devices the wireless network is provided “as is”.
The SVI wireless network should be accessible throughout the following locations at SVI:
9 Princes St
42 Fitzroy St (OBI)
4th Floor of Healy Building (NRL)
The BRC and the rest of the St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne campus are not covered.
