SSU Network Refresh on Schedule
Ohio has invested approximately $13 million to deploy innovative technology that will expand its current broadband infrastructure from its current 10Gbps to 100Gbps. This expansion leverages the 1,850-plus miles of fiber optic network operated by The Ohio Academic Resources Network (OARnet), connecting to Internet2’s international 100 Gbps network backbone at data hubs in Cleveland and Cincinnati.
New and Returning Students are "Getting IT Going"
Connecting to the campus housing (ResNet) or wireless network is an important step for students as they settle into their new student residence. So as new and returning students moved into Shawnee State University student housing on August 16th and 18th for the 2013 – 2014 academic year, UIS was on hand to help students “Connect IT”.
Vending Machines Get Connected
Beginning Fall Semester 2013, the vending machines on the Shawnee State University Campus joined the age of technology. The snack and drink vending machines across campus have been networked to allow for purchases using the SSU Bear Card.
UIS Supports Student Orientations
The student orientations for new students that are scheduled throughout the year are very important events to UIS. This is because it marks the beginning of each student using SSU-supported technology and one of the first services UIS offers to new students.
UIS Visits Evening Computer Labs
UIS staff visits computer labs that have classes scheduled after 5:00 pm during the first week of each semester. The purpose is to help students get connected to their network accounts during class when they need it. By reaching out to both on-campus and commuter students, we can help these individuals get connected to SSU technology immediately.
