Networking for Researchers

Data intensive science requires a mix of compute, storage, and networking technologies, and, depending on your algorithm and funding, you may use a mix of on or off campus resources.

High Speed Networking Connections

The default networking connection for a wired connection is 1 Gigabit Ethernet, which should suffice for most networking needs.

However, ITS is committed that our network should never be the bottleneck to your research needs. To ensure this is the case, we have the following high speed connection options available today:

Think You May Need Faster Network Connections?

If you believe you need higher speed connections than the options above, please contact our Network Service Owner and the ITS Director of Research Networks Eric Boyd. Eric will work with our Network Engineers to plan and architect our network in advance if you believe the volume of data you are sending across campus—or around the globe—will test our network capacity.
