Mobile wireless devices, common on many college campsues, have become a necessity in our everyday lives. Like many other universities around the nation, Penn State is opening up a world of possibilities through wireless mobile technologies — enabling students, faculty and staff to view library collections, connect to social media, Skype with colleagues and stream Netflix movies — all on their handheld devices.
To encourage adoption of the latest wireless technologies at Penn State, the University will end the "wireless 1.0" Virtual Private Network (VPN) service on July 1. All users should plan to transition to the University's latest "wireless 2.0" service for on-campus wireless connectivity.
