IUB Network Information
The IU Bloomington campus, the largest in the IU system, has an enrollment of over 36,000 students. Later to become Indiana University, the State Seminary, was established on 11 acres in Bloomington in 1820. From the first building in 1824, to the year 2000, the IUB campus had grown to cover 1931 acres and to include 484 buildings.
IUB Network Operations, with offices in the Wruble Computing Center, at 10th and the Bypass, is a group of network engineers who are responsible for the design, implemenation and operation of the campus Ethernet which extends across some 300 buildings to almost every office and dormitory room across campus. Other network services maintained by this group include a remote access pool with approximately 700 modems, two Gigabit Internet circuits serving the campus, high-bandwidth intercampus services to IUPUI, and a campus-wide wireless networking service. These services and others provided by IUB Network Operations comprise our "data networking services" as described on this web site.
Our Ethernet network runs over a fiber optic infrastructure between buildings using 100 Mbps, Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet protocols, and over copper lines at T1 speeds (1.54Mbps). Building infrastructures are based upon fiber and copper risers connecting Ethernet switches that feed 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps Ethernet to about 30,000 datajacks in offices, computer rooms, living quarters and public areas across campus.
