What: SecureW2 JoinNow deployment

When: Thursday, August 8, 2019, 7:30 a.m.

On Thursday, August 8, 2019, Cloudpath, the previous wireless client configuration utility, was replaced by SecureW2 JoinNow. SecureW2’s JoinNow app securely configures and connects devices to eduroam. After August 8, new devices must be configured using SecureW2 to connect to eduroam.

Devices that were configured to connect to eduroam manually or through CloudPath will function normally until the user’s UNCG password expires. As passwords expire, users will be required to reconnect to eduroam using SecureW2. ITS recommends proactively reconfiguring devices using the new app to avoid any potential loss of wireless connectivity when passwords expire.

Windows machines that are centrally managed by ITS on the General Computing Network (GCN) require no action at this time.
