What We Do

The Networking group keeps the campus connected and ensures that data moves quickly, reliably and safely. The group plans, designs, installs, operates and maintains the university's data networks, including the telecommunications pathways and space, the copper and fiber cable and wireless and radio infrastructure as well as all campus internet connectivity and IP address allocation and management.

They provide third-tier troubleshooting for switching, routing and network-based applications as well as Internet and Internet2 connectivity. Their Network Access Control (NAC) and IP address management processes and procedures ensure the security of the campus networks and client devices. Telephone moves and troubleshooting are handled by Networking, as well as regulation and tracking of peer to peer file sharing violations.
