The Stanford University Network (SUNet) is a high-speed, resilient, multi-100 Gig utility providing both underlying connectivity and related services in support of the University mission inclusive of all academic, administrative, research and residential users, applications and initiatives.
The SUNet backbone is designed and operated by University IT, IT Infrastructure. Network services within all historic and Stanford Redwood City campus buildings are the responsibility of the departments that occupy those buildings, unless support is contracted from University IT.
For academic and administrative buildings, IT Infrastructure provides and supports the data communication infrastructure to the facility entrance. Through the Converged Communication program, IT Infrastructure provides data communication infrastructure within the academic and administrative buildings.
For student residences, IT Infrastructure supports the data communication infrastructure to the service outlets (i.e., the wall jack) in student rooms. Off-campus connectivity is maintained through multiple Internet connections as well as Internet2. The Student Technology group within the VPSA Learning Technologies & Spaces department supports students in their use of network services in student housing facilities. When necessary, Student Technology consults and enlists support from University IT and IT Infrastructure.
