Technology Infrastructure at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine
The University of Miami medical campus is equipped with both wired and wireless Local Area Networks (LANs). The wired network serves all major facilities, providing 10/100/1G desktop connectivity and 1G/10G between buildings. The wireless network provides 802.11B/G inside of most major buildings, as well as to many outside areas, and is being upgraded to 802.11A/B/G/N. Full network access is restricted to faculty, staff, and students; third-party access requires specific authorization. Users may obtain limited guest internet access through a wireless cloud. Off-campus, a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) virtual private network (VPN) and a Citrix Applications Portal offer secure remote access.
Faculty, staff, students and approved third parties use electronic mail through Microsoft Exchange for Windows and Mac platforms, as well as through a secure Web portal, Outlook Web Access (OWA). Personal and departmental projects may use password-protected network file space, stored in secured datacenters and available on-campus and remotely via VPN. Users may access the commercial Internet, Internet2, and Florida LambdaRail, LLC (FLR), protected by perimeter firewalls and intrusion prevention systems. Campus collaboration tools include high-definition and standard-resolution video conferencing, web meeting tools, intranet space via Microsoft SharePoint, File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and web content servers.National Institutes of Health (NIH) Funding
