Network Policy

The network infrastructure at the Medical College and all network connections within it are managed exclusively by the Information Technologies & Services Department (ITS). The network may not be reconfigured in any way. Hubs, routers, or local area networks (LAN's) may not be installed by anyone outside ITS. Any computers which need to be connected to the network must be connected through ITS. A request form must be sent to us for any networked computers that need to be relocated to a new location or replaced with a new computer.

All devices connected to the WCMC network are assigned an ITS tag number (pictured at left). The ITS tag is six digit number starting with the number "1" preceded by the letters "ITS" or "OAC". This number can be found printed on a silver sticker usually affixed to either the top or front of your computer's case.
