Campus Next Generation Network
Next Generation Project Description
Changes to the campus network technology will allow for end-to-end centralized management of all networking resources.
Once installed, these network improvements will allow for easier network management, reducing effort and time to make user requested changes, improved network security and increased agility in effecting change to meet campus requirements.
December 2012 Tech Briefing
As part of the Next Gen Technology Project, a few changes will be made during the winter break, including:
- Upgrades to network switching equipment in University Housing. Nearly all of these changes will occur in the background and most users will not notice a disruption in data flow.
- Replacing the campus border firewalls that protect our network from internet attacks with next generation Cisco equipment.
October 2012 Tech Briefing
In October, the combined efforts of IT Services staff and engineers from Intervision, Nexus IS and Cisco implemented the base UCS computing system connected to NetApp storage at our Delta College Data Center.
Additionally, the secure network tunnel between the SJSU network and the Delta College network was established.
The Nexus IS Teams are finalizing details on the installation of additional equipment at the Computer Center and MacQuarie Hall equipment rooms along with our Delta College Data Center.
Over the next 3 to 4 weeks, over 25 servers/systems will be installed requiring support from our team to implement network definitions, server configurations, monitoring processes, application configuration and system interfaces. Most of these systems are new and not changing production services. The details of the changes will be provided as soon as available and the installations will be planned accordingly.
