Wireless network changes at all UCAR sites

In an effort to simplify wireless access for our visitors, guests, and staff with personal devices, there will be a new unencrypted wireless network called "UCAR Visitor" available on Monday, December 18th at all UCAR sites.  Rather than use a weekly password to access the network, guests, visitors, or staff may enter their name and email address to gain short or long term access.

Additionally on December 18th, neither the "UCAR VPN" nor the "UCAR Guest" wireless networks will be available at any UCAR site.  Please direct visitors and guests to the "UCAR Visitor" wireless network. UCAR staff have the option of enrolling on the "UCAR Visitor" network or else working with their IT staff to enroll on the "eduroam" network.  The "eduroam" network has the additional advantages of being both encrypted and also available at other participating labs and educational institutions across the globe.

For any questions related to this change, please send email to cislhelp@ucar.edu.

Announcement Timing: 
Wednesday, December 13, 2017 to Wednesday, December 20, 2017
