Network and Wifi

network

The University of Liege boasts one of the largest corporate networks in Wallonia: a 10-Gps optical fibre internet backbone covering the entirety of the Sart Tilman and downtown campuses, high-speed connection to distant sites, 1-Gbps dual-port internet access (via Belnet) , and 20 000 100-Mbps connection points!

As a university, it is our duty to offer the upmost security while remaining open to the world.  We are able to meet this challenge through a dual security system: the first is more comprehensive and situated at the junction of the network and the internet; the second utilizes the segmentation of the networks attached to the backbone in "differentiated zones" where the rules for filtering incoming and outgoing traffic can be modified according to local imperatives.

These features make possible the implementation of high-end applications such as  IP telephoning, video streaming, visioconference, Podcasting, etc.

Wireless network

wifi

 

Since the beginning of the 2006-07 academic year, ULg has been equipped with a WiFi network; probably the most extensive in Belgium, it numbers more than 800 terminals and covers all buildings on campus.  This network features both hotspot (ULg-Open) and secured (ULg-Secure) connections.  The use of these networks requires identity validation based on an ULg user name and password(available to university staff and students).  Visiting users can ask the UDI concerned for a temporary account for the duration of their stay at the university.
