Fatport Wireless Service integration with CWL November 14

On Tuesday, Nov 14th, changes will be made to the Fatport Wireless Service to complete full integration with UBC’s Campus Wide Login (CWL) service.

Users at a FatPort WiFi hotspot selecting “UBC(CWL)” from the FatPort Roaming Partners list will be redirected to the CWL login page to enter their CWL login name and password.

Login to the FatPort service is then completed using a one time ticket generated by CWL.

This change improves security for all UBC CWL account holders using the FatPort service – ensuring all login information and credentials are handled solely by UBC services and servers.
