How to get a temporary IST wireless network access account?

SI provides temporary wireless network access accounts (usually for less than 15 days), usually intended for visitors, meetings or conferences.

For this purpose, just send a mail to, at least 24 hours in advance, with the following data:

  • Name and email of the person responsible for the account, who must be a professor, researcher or IST official;
  • Telephone or telephone extension of the IST teacher, official or researcher;
  • Period of time intended for the use of the account;
  • Acronym that can be used as a user name.

The author of the request will receive, by mail, a set of instructions to access the account, which should be given to the visitor(s).

The use of the wireless network for these users will be done from the tecnico-guest.
