Home office and private IT devices

VPN: Using university resources frugally
Due to the increased home office activity, there are currently bottlenecks when using VPN. The computer center therefore asks you to use these resources frugally. For Windows users there is also a new VPN client available.
Mini PCs for working from home
As a preventive measure and in case there are going to be supply shortages due to the corona crisis, 100 Mini PCs from the BW-PC range of products are currently stored at the computer center. The PCs are suitable as home office computers, as they are small and powerful and costs are kept to a minimum.
Video conference platforms
Since most of the teaching in the summer semester, as well as meetings in research and administration, need to take place digitally, the computer center has compiled an overview of the available video conference solutions.
