Getting Started Coverage

In addition to the existing in-room full secure wireless access coverage (A,B,G,N), we have added a new IP broadcast TV service (IPTV) streaming 48 TV channels and available to all residence students.

[8-24-12] This Fall semester we are introducing a new method of wireless access authentication (Cisco ISE) simplifying access to the WPUNJ wireless network. This new authentication system will support all major WiFi mobile, gaming and other multimedia devices automatically or through self-provisioning improving the overall wireless access experience at WPUNJ. See getting started for more information.

[4-11-12] We are happy to announce that this spring (2012) we have completed the last phase of the campus wireless project giving secure wireless access coverage (A,B,G,N) to all buildings on campus. We will continue to expand and replace old wireless technology with new as needed.
