As input to a review which Information Services are conducting into EdLAN, the network which ties the University together, I have written a document which describes the Informatics network and the various “requirements” that guide its design and management.
Please feel free to read it! I hope you don’t find the style too offputting; it was written for a specific purpose, and as a result is a bit dense in places. If you prefer, just skip to the descriptive appendix, which starts about half way through. I’m happy to answer questions you might have, whether through the support form, inf-general or indeed in person.
The “requirements” document itself is here, and you might also find the following pages helpful:
- DCS and Informatics network history
- Our network technical documentation
- Help for users of the Informatics network
Many thanks to the members of the Computing team who commented on previous drafts.
