Coming soon - MUHC to provide access to McGill resources over the wireless network
One of the IT challenges over the last several years has been providing McGill faculty members, students, staff and researchers access to McGill resources when they are at the McGill University Health Centre. The MUHC’s firewall is extremely restrictive due to Ministry of Health regulations.
Coming in March 2012, there will finally be a solution. The MUHC has been working closely with McGill’s Network and Communications Services (NCS), piloting a solution that uses both institutions’ wireless networks.
McGill users situated at MUHC can connect to a new wireless network (SSID: CUSM-MUHC.MCGILL.CA) using their McGill Username and McGill Password. Once connected, they will be able to access the same resources as if they were on the McGill network.
This collaboration between McGill IT Services and MUHC represents a commitment to the sharing of information and resources.
Watch for further announcements in March, 2012.
