Information and Instructional Technology Services
Procedure for Network Connections
In order to provide better service, network performance and security, all devices attached to the UW-Superior network (wired or wireless) must be registered with, and certified by, Technology Services. Technology Services manage several device databases used for network security, performance and reporting. This policy does not apply to the UWS Guest wired or Guest wireless networks. In addition, there may be temporary wireless networks setup that may be exempt from this policy.
Campus IT staff has the authority to allow/deny attachment of the device based on its meeting the following criteria:
All network-attached device purchases must be approved by the Technology Services. Upon delivery, the Technology Services Helpdesk must be notified to make arrangements for University Technicians to perform initial configuration and deployment. Any devices that do not comply with these policies may be disconnected from the network. See Policy on Disconnecting From the Network . Designated "Server" class systems administrators are required to sign a declaration attesting to their awareness and knowledge of the University Information Assurance policies. A user wishing to have local administrative privileges to a University owned device must contact the Technology Services Helpdesk in order to obtain the proper forms.
Please note under some circumstances, systems that would normally be deemed threatening to network performance, integrity and security may be authorized by Technology Services in an effort to facilitate the primary campus mission of educating students.
If a department feels that a device has been inappropriately blocked or restricted, it may request a review of the decision by the Chief Information Officer. If, after the review, there is still a disagreement with the decision, it may be further reviewed by the Provost.
