Wired Internet - 1Gb (GigE) Connections

Last Updated: 10/19/2012


By 2013 it is expected that the campus-wide standard will evolve from 100 megabit connections to 1 gigabit (GigE). (GigE is the equivalent of 1 billion bits per second, or 1,000 Mbps.) In the meantime, GigE is provided to those whose work would be impeded without GigE. This typically impacts those conducting research computing or those who do large data transfers.

Who can get it

Faculty and staff whose work would be impeded without GigE.

How to get it

Work with your Telecommunication Liaisons and the liaison will submit the request via our online ordering form: Order Ethernet Service Online

Consultation is available. Contact the IT Service Center and explain that you are interested in GigE service.
