The fully-redundant fiber-optic backbone runs at gigabit speeds, connecting all buildings on campus and feeding every room and office through CAT6 twisted-pair cables and six strands of multi-mode fiber optics. Every node on our network has full access to the Internet and its many valuable resources, all of which gets passed through our Fortigate UTM protecting users from Viruses, Trojans, and Spyware. Students, faculty and staff also have access to a campus-wide wireless network supported by Aerohive Wireless Access Points.
