Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) portal allows Subnet Managers to register and manage devices such as A/V devices, printers, lab equipment and more. Devices can receive internet access by completing the IoT Device Registration process.

In the IoT portal, Subnet Managers will be able to add or manage existing IoT devices. Users can remove, edit, print, or view each device’s details once registered. IoT device registration and management is limited to CSU Subnet Managers, access can be granted to additional users at the request of an existing subnet manager.

If you need assistance with registering or configuring an IoT device, submit a Helpdesk ticket to the Division of IT Wireless Team.
