Network infrastructure


The SCS network employs a high-availability campus infrastructure, leveraging a dual-core design with multiple, redundant 10Gb uplinks the campus network. Newell-Simon Hall, Gates-Hillman Centers, and segments of Wean Hall have 10Gb uplinks to the SCS core routers. Every end-host connection is 10/100/1000Mbps capable.

There is no firewall between the SCS network and the rest of the world.
