  • Redundant connections to the Internet and national research and education networks
  • Overall traffic and capacity management
  • Domain Name Services
  • DHCP service for departments that elect to use it
  • 24/7 monitoring for security breaches and outside attacks

Wired network connections in offices or classrooms are activated upon request by the department.

You can also connect to Cornell's network over wi-fi (including eduroam) and, for secure access when you're off-campus, through CU VPN (Virtual Private Network).
