Update on NJIT Wireless Network Services

Wireless network named “NJIT” to be retired from service on 10/29/2018

IST supports several wireless networks, each with different names and for different uses.  A new wireless network with the network name or SSID of NJITguest was introduced this fall.  This wireless network is intended for visitors and alumni while on campus and provides a self-service portal for easy access to the Internet.  Information on the self-service portal is available at: http://ist.njit.edu/wireless-network./.

Students, faculty and staff should use the wireless network with name or SSID of NJITsecure. It provides encrypted traffic and your device can remember it, eliminating the need to authenticate every time it is used.

The wireless network with name or SSID of NJIT will be retired on October 29th, 2018.  If you have been using it, please switch to either NJITsecure or NJITguest beginning October 29 and delete the NJITwireless network name profile from your device.

Detailed information about NJIT wireless networks is available at  http://ist.njit.edu/wireless-network./.   If you have additional questions, please contact the IST Service Desk at 973-596-2900.

Google Team Drives

Mon, 09/24/2018 - 09:30

Team Drives is now available to NJIT users. This new feature in Google Drive makes working in teams easier and safer.

Team Drives are shared Google Drive spaces where teams can store their files and guarantee that every member has the most up-to-date information, no matter the time or place.

What makes Team Drives special?

  • Every person and Google Group added to a Team Drive gets instant access to that team’s documents.
  • Team Drives are designed to store the team’s work collectively, so if a document’s creator moves off of the team that document doesn’t go with them. This makes it easier to manage Google Drive folders and documents.
  • Team members are prevented from accidentally removing or deleting files that others need.

How do I get started?

  1. Go to drive.google.com.
  2. On the left, click Team Drives.
  3. At the top left, click New.
  4. Enter a name for the Team Drive.
  5. Click Create.
  6. At the top, click Add members.
  7. Add names, email addresses, or a Google Group.

    By default, members can upload, edit, and delete files, and invite other members.

  8. Click Send.

If you have any questions about Team Drives please contact the IST Service Desk at 973-596-2900.
