IRIS network engineers have been hard at work designing and deploying data networks throughout Sutardja Dai Hall, the new home of the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Dado and Maria Banatao Institute@CITRIS Berkeley.
Now, as CITRIS staff begin moving in, Sutardja Dai Hall is officially online. The new network features Cisco Aironet 1250 wireless access points providing high-speed 802.11n wireless networking at 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz with data rates up to 300 Mbps per radio. Enterprise grade Extreme Networks BlackDiamond 8800 switches provide wired 1000Base-T gigabit Ethernet connectivity throughout the building.
Support for the new network is provided by IRIS, just like in Soda and Cory Halls, and access is available to anyone with an IRIS account.
