Hi NOC team, thanks for doing such sterling work behind the scenes. It is
really appreciated and we could not run the meeting without it.

I have a personal Windows Phone 8.1 (Nokia Lumia 520) which got on to the
IETF-2.4 GHz ONLY ssid without too much trouble, but my years old corporate
Blackberry (Bold 9780, version 6.0 Bundle 2554) was very confused, again
trying to connect to the same SSID (guess neither of them do 5GHz). I got
asked to select the root CA from a list of quite a few, which I really
wasn't expecting, but I selected the one I had seen on my Windows phone and
it connected without further fuss.

Happy to share this with you in person if you feel it is worthwhile.

Best regards

Sorry you're seeing this. Please do come by the Help Desk in Brasserie, as we'd love to resolve your issue as well as understand how the new SSID layout impacts different devices. In the mean time, you might want to try ietf-legacy for your Blackberry for connectivity. Please let the Help Desk person know you've got an active ticket so they update this.
