The University of Miami provides two wireless networks for the University community:


About SecureCanes:

UM faculty, staff, and students are strongly encouraged to use SecureCanes, which has added security to protect the University’s sensitive academic, administrative, and medical records information. SecureCanes also provides encryption for wireless communications, making it safer to use wireless devices, such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets. The SecureCanes network provides extra security features, including blocking anonymizer tools and anonymous traffic, Botnet protection, malicious spam and phishing protection, an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), virus filtering, and more.


About CanesGuest:

CanesGuest is an open (does not require a password), unsecured, and unencrypted network. The guest wireless network is available throughout the Coral Gables, Medical, and RSMAS Campuses. It provides fast, reliable Internet and UM network connectivity for guests. 


If you have any questions or concerns about UM's wireless networks, please contact the UMIT Service Desk at: (305) 284-6565 or help@miami.edu.
