The 21st Century (Network) is Finally Here!

November 10, 2005 by Brian Deith

After several years of waiting for a promised 21st Century Network, we finally have one!

In terms of technology, what this means is that all old networking cabling, hubs, and switches have been replaced with high speed equipment that increases the speed of your connection by up to 10 times. In the background, DoIT will now be responsible for maintaining equipment that we at LSS had to maintain. The managed equipment now in place will make it easier to pinpoint and resolve network problems.

What this means for you is that you can now send and receive data much faster, making it possible to:

  • Access media-rich websites, including from foreign countries
  • View television from the Digital Academic Television Network, here on campus
  • Upload or download large files in a fraction of the time it used to take you

And coming soon...
We will have wireless networking throughout the building, classrooms and offices in Van Hise Hall, around January 1st.

If you have questions about these new services, please don't hesitate to contact us.
