Network Service


Wired Network Services are delivered via an extensive physical network infrastructure deployed throughout the UW campus. Typically, departments access this service by plugging their network devices into an activated data wallport within their building.

Optical Network

Optical networking is a means of communication that uses signals encoded onto light to transmit information among various nodes of a telecommunications network.

Copper Network

With the change of informatic proprietary systems to open systems, were created the conditions for the change of proprietary cable systems to open systems of common use, arising then the concept of structured cabling network.


A wireless local area network (WLAN) is a wireless computer network that links two or more devices using a wireless distribution method (often spread-spectrum or OFDM radio) within a limited area such as a home, school, computer laboratory, or office building.

Point to Point

The point-to-point wireless topology is the simplest network architecture you can set up in order to connect two locations using a wireless radio link. Point-to-point wireless links can go from a short-range link connecting two locations just a few hundreds meters .

Point To Multi Point

In telecommunications, point-to-multipoint communication is communication which is accomplished via a distinct type of one-to-many connection, providing multiple paths from a single location to multiple locations.

Wireless Hot Spots

A hotspot is a physical location that offers Internet access over a wireless local area network (WLAN) through the use of a router connected to a link to an Internet service provider. Hotspots typically use Wi-Fi technology.


The eagle-secure SSID is eagle-secure. The acronym SSID stands for Service Set Identifier. It is an alphanumeric key that uniquely identifies a wireless network. The SSID differentiates one wireless network from another. All access points and devices attempting to connect a specific wireless network must be configured with the same SSID.
