The Telecommunications and Network Services department within ITS continues to expand and improve upon our campus’s communication systems whether it be by our telephone services or the via our Wi-Fi connections. Currently TNS manages the over 800 access points spread out throughout the campus to ensure we all stay connected within our Eduroam.
Wi-Fi now in Parking Lot N
As of now CSUSB’s Wi-Fi capabilities have branched out to Parking Lot N, being the first to establish a steady connection within the campus. With the upcoming plans to build new housing on campus, the TNS plans to continue its expansion of our Wi-Fi by having the entire campus connected whether inside or outside.
New digital phone book
The TNS department is beginning to make headway by initiating the launch of a new virtual phone book which will be used for faculty and staff. Unlike the CSUSB directory, the phone book is planned to me managed by HR to which proper contact and title information can be provided.
CSUSB Access not available
Another changed within the TNS is that CSUSB Access is no longer available to access via one’s Wi-Fi settings. This change is one which will further encourage all within campus to utilize the Eduroam account. Let it be known that there is a “visitors” account through one’s Wi-Fi settings which can be used for guests who do not have the credentials met for Eduroam.
