What we do
Departmental Network Engineering, part of Networking Systems, manages the Net-to-Jack and Net-to-Switch programs, as well as the Residential networks. DNE also works with campus organizations to help them take full advantage of the services available through SUNet.
Additional functions of Departmental Network Engineers are to:
- provide advice to Local Network Administrators (LNAs) on departmental networks
- provide educational courses to LNAs on Stanford network practices
- work on campus infrastructure projects (wireless, etc.)
- evaluate new technologies
Departmental Network Engineering does not provide local network or system administration services. The IT Services Computer Resource Center can provide contract support (fee-for-service) for local networks, and PC, Mac and Unix servers and desktops.
Network Operations Classes
We began offering shorter topics through the Tech Briefings program in April, 2003. Briefings offered have been:
- A Very Basic Introduction to Networking at Stanford.
- NetDB for Power Users
- Wireless Networking [PowerPoint]
All Previous Network Consulting classes were offered through the IT Services Technology Training. They may have other classes of interest to LNA's. Here are the classes we used to offer, with links to their presentations, which will be outdated but may still be useful:
- Networking Fundamentals (ITS 901)
- TCP/IP at Stanford (ITS 902)
- Network Troubleshooting (ITS 903)
- Off-Campus Connectivity (ITS 904)
- Setting Up and Managing Switched Networks (ITS 905)
