The University Computer Network comprises of several V-lans, which are linked together using Layer 3 CISCO switches supporting fiber optic technology. Several servers supporting different operating systems using 1Gb/s Ethernet capability offer a throughput for even the most demanding application. The TCP/IP being the only protocol used on the network gives maximum network bandwidth efficiency and the ability of a coherent multisystem environment. The entire University network is connected to the Internet under the domain “euc.ac.cy” using a 40Mbit/s Ethernet connection. The combination of UNIX and Windows 2003 servers that are connected on the Network provide fast and rock solid performance services for Microsoft Windows or UNIX operating systems for over six hundred and fifty PC users. Some of the services offered include Internet Web Access, Internet e-mail, Web page production & hosting, ftp, Oracle RDBMS, personal files hosting, network laser and color printing and color image-scanning facilities.
The University in its effort to use the latest technology available has installed and operated a wireless network. The wireless service is available free to staff, students and invited guests and offers a flexible way to access online resources from wireless hotspots across the University campus using a laptop, mobile phone or PDA.
