Supported and Unsupported Devices on the UTC Network

UTC’s goal is to not to prevent any type of device from being used on the network, but there are many devices out there meant to be used at home and are not capable of working on an enterprise network.  UTC IT staff have spent many hours troubleshooting everything in the following list and have determined what does or does not work on the UTC network (wired/wireless).  Note that we do not seek out new device types to test, but if a user has one that is not on the list below we will work with them to either get them connected or determine if they are incompatible.

For all devices, please register them for network access at https://portal.utc.edu/registration.  Anything that does not support the agent installation or does not automatically register will open a ticket with the help desk for processing.
