Every data port on campus that is wired to a data closet is connected and "hot" at a speed of 10 to 100MB. To access the network, every computer must be registered before it is allowed to fully take advantage of the University's resources. Students enjoy a decicated secure network for RESNET providing high speed access to the Internet.
