Network

One of CCIT’s biggest offerings is the variety of services revolving around use of the campus network. Services are available for both on campus and off campus use.

 

Broadcast Requests

Broadcast requests provide voice or high speed data needs for any sporting events.

Campus Network

Clemson University's campus network provides high-speed, reliable connectivity throughout campus. The campus network supports both Ethernet (data) and voice services. Visit the Outdoor Wireless Coverage Map page for outdoor campus coverage.

Domain Name Services (DNS)

Domain Name Service (DNS) is a database system that translates a fully qualified domain name that identifies a computer, server, or peripherals, e.g. network printers on the network, e.g. www.example.com, into an IP address e.g. 124.145.6.35.

External Networks

Clemson University's C-Light Network has closed the cyber gap in South Carolina by joining the national high-speed research community through direct fiber connections between Clemson, Greenville, Atlanta and Charlotte, providing direct access to the National LambdaRail, Internet2 and other national and international research networks.

Firewall Services

A system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both.

IP Addressing & Management

An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a unique address that certain electronic devices use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a computer network utilizing the Internet Protocol standard (IP)

Jack Activation / Installation

As needed, previously unused jacks can be activated and new jacks can be installed to provide network access on campus.

Outdoor Wireless Coverage Map

This map is up-to-date as of 11/9/20 and will change as campus wireless engineers continue to update and improve the campus wireless network. Outdoor wireless is operated as a "best effort"service. Coverage in any area may not be sufficient for special events. Before scheduling any event that will depend on WiFi coverage, please contact the Wireless Networking team at ithelp@clemson.edu to discuss coverage needs.  

Network Registration (NetReg)

The NetReg system builds a dynamic table of workstation addresses and the user who registered it. This ensures that there is a person that can be quickly contacted in the event that there are issues with this workstation on the network. NetReg also serves as the base for the DHCP and IP database systems for managing IP address assignment.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

VPN (Virtual Private Network): A network that uses a public telecommunication infrastructure, such as the Internet, to provide remote offices or individual users with secure access to their organization's network. VPN users can exchange data as if inside an internal network although they are not directly interconnected.

Wide Area Networking

Wide Area Networking (WAN) is the communications network that connects the local area network (LAN), in our case the campus network, to the outside world reaching a very large geographic area.

Wireless

Clemson's user wireless network is provided through Eduroam, a Global WiFi Roaming service for Academia. Eduroam allows for anyone with a valid Clemson login to use the Eduroam network here on campus but also at any other Internet2 Net+ institution taking advantage of this service. Clemson guests can take advantage of the ClemsonGuest network that allows for a temporary login credential to be used during a temporary visit.
