Wired Connection Content

Wired Connection

Wired connections on campus a predominantly 1000 Mb/s (1 Megabit per second - a/k/a 1 Gigb/s.)  The connections are reliable and provide the best performance and quality of service. Network devices attached to the wired network are required to be registered.


Internet Service Providers

Much like your cable or DSL connection at home, RIT connects to its own Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to provide Internet access to the community.  We connect to our three ISPs though geographically diverse locations. Additionally, we connect to the research and education (R&E) network, Internet2, for scholarly activities with other Internet2 member sites.

Residence Halls and Apartments

Each residence hall room is equipped (typically) with a wired Ethernet jack for each resident.  These are 1000Mb/s (1Gb/s) connections and each requires wired connections to be registered.
