These devices can already use the WPI-Wireless network.   WPI does not support connecting to WPI-Wireless or eduroam via 3rd party applications such as Cisco, AnyConnect, or Intel ProSet.  Further, we are unable to support these clients which are secured and managed by an external IT group.  Any device requiring this level of support will need to be escalated to the IT group which manages the device.
