NextGen Wireless pilot begins April 11 in CSC & WUSOC; Baker, Stocker & Alden to follow on May 7

Individuals who work in the Computer Services Center (CSC) and the West Union Street Office Complex (WUSOC - formerly known as the HDL Center) will be the first to sample the much-anticipated NextGen Wireless upgrade when the Office of Information Technology begins piloting the new service on April 11. 

The NextGen Wireless will offer multiple improvements over the university's old wireless system, including:

  • Automatic logins
  • Building-to-building roaming
  • Faster performance

Beginning April 11, these new features will be available only in CSC and WUSOC. The pilot will be expanded on May 7 to include Baker Center, Stocker Center, and Alden Library. A university-wide roll out will begin thereafter and take approximately one and a half years to complete.

Faculty, staff, students, and sponsored guests who wish to access wireless in either CSC or WUSOC after the pilot begins will need to use a different login method than the old wireless.  

Questions about the new wireless pilot should be directed to wireless@ohio.edu or 740-566-WIFI (9434). After the pilot concludes, calls should be directed to the OIT Service Desk at 740-593-1222.
