IoT (Internet of Things) and Embedded Devices

For devices that do not support 802.1x, OCADU maintains a network that uses an alternate authentication method.  This network requires that the MAC address of your device is registered in our database.  

To request access to this network, email IT Services at with the MAC address (or addresses) of the device you'd like to use.  You will receive the pre-shared key (password) for this network, and the device you've registered will have access for 1 year.  The network is hidden.  Its name is 'ocadu-embedded'.

For instructors wishing to register multiple devices, IT Services provides access to a registration portal where multiple devices can be managed.
