Adobe License Changes

Sep 28, 2016 | Uncategorized

Last year, CTS was able to purchase an Adobe Creative Cloud license for the campus that allowed us to install the Master Suite products on SUNY-owned equipment.  This is a subscription service that expires on 9/29.  Due to the subscription ending, we are now able to join the SUNY Adobe contract at a significant cost savings to the campus.  

There are a few changes related to this that you should be aware of:

High Volume of Devices Connecting to Residential Wireless

Aug 29, 2016 | Networking

We are experiencing a high volume of devices trying to connect to the residential network, specifically in Seneca, Onondaga, and Johnson.  If you have devices that are not being used, such as wireless printers, gaming devices and content streaming devices, please disconnect them from the residential wifi as to free up the network for others while we work on fixing the issue. Thank you for your patience!

Changes to Mahar 210 and Mahar 211 Classroom Computer Labs

Aug 26, 2016 | Uncategorized

Mahar 210 is a computer lab with approximately 25 PCs and Mahar 211 is a lab with approximately 25 Macs.  During the class year, these labs have been used during the day for classes and then open for general access from 6pm-10pm Monday through Thursday.  They will continue to be used for classes during the day and, new this fall semester, they will also be used for classes in the evening.  This change was made based on the need for additional labs for classes being taught later in the day as well as low usage of both labs during the general access time period.
