Network connectivity

The University data network provides connectivity between, and within, the University’s sites.

The large main campuses in Nottingham are interconnected with multiple fibre optic links providing 10Gbps connections between the core routers.

It supports the IPv4 network protocol to allow systems connected to the network to communicate with each other and with the outside world.

It has connections to the Global Internet, via EMMAN and SuperJANET in the UK, and via the national commercial and educational networks in Malaysia and China.

The China and Malaysia campuses are linked into the data network currently via the public Internet. Smaller campuses in the East Midlands are linked into the data network via the East Midlands Metropolitan Area Network (EMMAN) at speeds up to 100Mbps.
