“We are so excited to make a difference in the lives of students on campus,” says Ian Jahnig, a Student Manager at the ITS Solution Center. “Most of the fixes are quick, sometimes all it takes is 30 seconds to improve the access and reliability of the Wi-Fi services on a computer”. The CITE is a part of a commitment of ITS to improve student internet on campus. “The quality of our Internet service is a significant and constant priority for us”, says Bruce Vieweg, Chief Information Officer at Concordia. Bruce also pointed out that ITS installed over 100 new access points to areas of campus in most need of an upgrade last summer. “This will be a great opportunity for people to resolve the most common Wi-Fi issues on campus” says James Jehlik, Manager of the ITS Solution Center. Workers will be prepared to solve issues related to Windows 10, 8, and 7 operating systems, as well as all Mac operating systems.
