NETWORKING

ITS-UNI supports an extensive data network for the LSU campus that consists of secured wireless and hard wired connections at speeds up to 10 Gbps providing connectivity to the Internet, Internet2 and the National Lamba Rail. Connection speeds for individual computers range from 10 Mbps to 1 Gbps copper connections. Individual connection speeds on campus depend on location and the switching gear that supports that given location.

 

TCP/IP is the sole OSI Layer 3 supported protocol used on the LSU network. Other protocols may be used, but shall be confined to the local subnet. Ownership and control of the LSU IP space resides with UNI. Any changes that need be made to IP spaces will be coordinated with departments to insure no interruption of service.

 

IPv6 is currently supported on the LSU network.
