Wired Connection Content
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.
The primary exception to this is the Riverknoll apartments which have no wired network jacks. Wireless service was installed in the summer of 2018 in each apartment.
