Network Operations and Engineering teams provides data connectivity to all residential, administrative, academic, and research locations at the university. The network operations staff design and maintain the physical and wireless infrastructure that provides all communication services within buildings and between buildings throughout the Storrs and regional campuses as well as cooperative extensions. 

The University is investing in refreshing the wired access layer, the largest component of the data network. Find out more about this five-year project.
