The Problem: Faculty researchers have a need for faster network connectivity, especially as it relates to storage for research data.
Status: ITS’s network upgrade plan is being continued. In order to upgrade specific research initiatives earlier, one-time funding can be used.
Next Steps: The ITS team is working on a network design for around ten (10) pilot locations where upgrades to 1Gb/s or 10Gb/s could show significant value to an identified research team.
What Does Success Look Like? Faculty will see the network as an enhancement – an asset – to their successful collaborations across Grounds and with other university partners.
