fiber optics transmission media, the campus LAN delivers 100Mbps
of managed bandwidth to the desktop. It is further comprised
of routable, load-balanced SmartSwitches that are logically
and physically sub-netted via VLANS, responsible for optimizing
transmissions and reducing broadcast traffic, with built in
public and off-site access, UIS supports 2 T-1 Leased Lines
that offer 48 digital modems with the potential to transmit
at 56Kbps, and connects to a remote access server/internet
authentication server for dial-up services. Integrated with
Active Directory for a single network sign-on, most network
resources will soon be available remotely. Further plans to
provide a VPN connection to the RAS server will, when complete,
allow access to the campus network via a secondary ISP.
