Student Wide Area Network Management
ULCC has in depth experience of developing and supporting the wide area network connecting the 7 Student Halls of Residence managed by the central University of London.
This network provides access to JANET from the University of London Halls of Residence, for the furtherance of the residents' academic work. Reasonable personal use is also permitted. The network also provides access to the central University of London corporate systems for administrative staff based in the halls. Appropriate security has been implemented to prevent unauthorised student access to the corporate systems.
The network extends across eight locations, mostly in the Bloomsbury area:
Wireless access is currently not provided, but the funding for this will probably be available in the next year. There are ca. 3,000 residents, with ca 1,000 active on the network concurrently during the evenings. Support is provided for network connection but students are expected to provide their own PCs. Limited advice is provided on the software configuration that is required to achieve a connection.
The key challenges with this form of wide area network are:
Since taking over the operational management of the network ULCC has delivered a service that has improved considerably while costs have been kept under control. The cost per student appears to be significantly less than other institutions have been able to achieve.
