Bradford Agent Overview

 

Information Technology Services is in the process of finalizing the implementation of a campus-wide network access control (NAC) system.The system provides registration of devices attempting to connect to the Tennessee Tech data network. Access to the network will be restricted to pre-registered TTU-owned devices, devices registered through the entry of a valid TTU username/password, and devices of authorized guests. Where applicable, the registration process will also check if the device is running a current version of anti-virus software.

Do Not Connect Wireless Routers or Hubs to Network
Associated Wired connections will be disabled when discovered
