Yeah, corny title, I know.
I’ve a few more details I can give out about Ruckus at MTU now.
Ruckus will be active this fall.
Representatives will be on campus the 20, 21 and 22nd for Orientation and will be participating in a few seminars and the expo.
They will be providing applications to us for people to sign up, however the primary sign-up method will be online.
Ruckus is advertising in the Lode for an on campus marketing director to do posters, be at K-Day, etc.
Their X-Serve is here and will be loaded with 10,000 of the most popular songs. When someone downloads a song that is not local, it will be downloaded to the server in the EERC and their own machine.
Each month a USB hard drive full of movies will arrive and be connected to the server. The MPAA doesn’t allow those movies to go over the internet yet.
Ruckus has their own PC in the basement of DHH that they can Remote Desktop in for testing. They’ll be monitoring speed, etc.
At the moment, that’s about all I have to tell you. I can try to find out more if anyone wants to leave questions/concerns (other than complaining about the operating systems it doesn’t run on, etc.) in a comment.
The information in my previous post still applies.
