Moobilenetx is Retiring on 6/15/16, Migrate to Eduroam Now!

Hello UC Davis Affiliate,

My name is Brent Hammond and I’m the Project Manager for the team responsible for retiring the UC Davis moobilenetx wireless network. We are beginning to target some of the heaviest users of moobilenetx in order to encourage them (you) to migrate all your devices to the eduroam wireless network.

You have been identified as having 2 devices still using the moobilenetx network during the first week in May.

We strongly encourage you to migrate those devices to eduroam before the rush. The final deadline is June 15, 2016. If you have not migrated to eduroam by then your devices will not be able to connect to a UC Davis wireless network securely.

I’ve included some information below to help you.

Sincerely,
Brent Hammond
IET Project Manager

The campus is retiring the moobilenetx wireless network on June 15. If you haven’t moved to eduroam yet, it’s time to do so.
 
Eduroam, short for “education roaming,” has advantages over moobilenetx. Once you’re enrolled, it will automatically and securely connect your phone or device to wireless services when you visit other UC campuses, most U.S. colleges, and many colleges, airports, governmental buildings and public sites worldwide.

ACTION

Sign in to eduroam by using a variation of your UC Davis computing account login. Use your Kerberos ID (the same one you use to sign into CAS) plus “ucdavis.edu” – for example, jrxsmith@ucdavis.edu.

If you encounter any problems at all the easiest way around them to use eduroam’s Configuration Assistance Tool (CAT). For desktop and laptop computers go to http://cat.eduroam.org and follow the instructions. For Android and iPhone cellular phones you can download the Eduroam CAT app from the app store.

Go to the IT Catalog for more eduroam information and connection instructions.

BACKGROUND

UC Davis was one of the first 15 U.S. institutions of higher education to join eduroam in 2011. UC Davis has been simplifying its wireless network in recent years, and retired moobilenet—the older, less-secure version of moobilenetx—in April 2015. With the retirement of moobilenetx, wireless access points at UC Davis will be dedicated to eduroam.
