Network and Infrastructure
MIT has partnered with AT&T to build a neutral-host Distributed Antenna System (DAS) on the MIT campus. The DAS is a network of antenna nodes connected to a common radio frequency source via a transport medium that provides improved cellular coverage and capacity within a building.
The DAS is open to all wireless carriers. IS&T is continuously working with wireless carriers to make coverage and capacity improvements on campus.
IS&T provides Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone service to MIT individuals, groups, departments, labs, and centers (DLCs) via the Zoom Phone platform.
MIT Touchstone is a single sign-on web authentication service that allows members of the MIT community to log in to participating MIT and federated websites using their MIT credentials. When using a Touchstone-enabled application, your credentials will never be passed to the application service.
The remote access Virtual Private Network (VPN) service provides added privacy and security for your computing activities as well as the ability to access protected MIT resources that require a MITnet IP address.
The Prisma Access VPN service, a cloud-based VPN offering, provides a secure connection between your computing device and the cloud VPN gateway using the GlobalProtect VPN client.
GlobalProtect replaces MIT’s legacy Cisco AnyConnect client, which has been retired.
