When you’re providing gadgets and IT support to students living in Carolina’s residential halls, you have a heck of a variety of devices to maintain and troubleshoot.
Information Technology Services’ ResNET unit is prepared. On its shelves and in its cabinets, ResNET stocks inflatable movie screens, sound systems, consoles for video game tournaments, projectors, cameras, tuners, all sorts of cables, touch-screen digital signs and much more.
With all the gadgets that students bring with them or use while in the residential halls, ResNET employees test many devices on the network that staff members in many other areas of campus are unlikely to encounter, said Paul Wolff, ResNET Interim Manager.
Besides serving students, ResNET also provides IT equipment and support to the University’s Department of Housing and Residential Education.
Along with all that audio-visual and hardware support for students and the Housing department, of course, are tools and software galore.
Software aside, here is a partial list of some of those devices that ResNET maintains:30+ laptops/surfaces 17 iPads 19 sound systems 52 HDTVs/game systems with Netflix accounts and multiple video adapters 16 touch-screen digital signs 16 CCI printers
