Information Resources & Technology recently achieved a significant milestone in our ongoing effort to provide a faster, more reliable internet connection to the students, faculty and staff of Rowan University.
In November, we finished a more than fourfold increase in the University’s internet bandwidth and added a second internet service provider. The University is now served by 13 gigabits per second of internet bandwidth, which means students, faculty and staff now have a significantly wider pipe through which they can send and receive data.
What does this mean for you?
Faster download speeds
Improved response times
Better performance of cloud-based applications
We also deployed new network devices in November that will help us ensure the University’s bandwidth is effectively managed to serve the needs of students, faculty and staff.
We want to thank every member of the University for their support as we implemented these improvements as part of our multi-year network redesign project, and we look forward to rolling out additional network improvements in the future.
Note: This post has been updated to reflect the University is now served by 13 gigabits per second of internet bandwidth, rather than 12.
