About Network Services

About NS

Network Services is a unit of UF Information Technology.

Network Services ties everything together by connecting individual workstations, servers, and networks to each other. This involves hardware, software, and wires. Concomitant with networking itself are the areas of telephony and network security. These three components work hand-in-hand to provide UF with a healthy, redundant, state-of-the-art computer communications environment.

Network Services offers campus and state-wide network and Internet access including the UF Campus Core Backbone, Florida LambdaRail (FLR) and Internet2, Network Hardware & Configuration support, and Infrastructure "Service to the Wallplate." Ways to connect include Direct Connection, Wireless, VPN, and Walk-Up Ethernet.
