The network in the Gates Building is a switched network consisting of around 40 VLANs. This network is comprised of two backbone switches with router modules. These are dual-connected via Gigabit Ethernet trunks to 25 edge switches located throughout the building. This provides the Gates Building with over 1500 switched Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Connection to the campus backbone is via redundant 10-Gigabit Ethernet links.
In addition, the Computer Science offices located in the Clark Bio-X Center are connected to three Cisco Catalyst 3550 series switches, which are directly connected via Gigabit fibre to the Gates backbone switches.
802.11n wireless networking in Gates is provided by Meraki MR14 access points spread throughout the building, providing access to local networks as well as the campus-wide wireless network.
