The NKN Node at BGSB University is linked to the national network with 1Gbps fibre optic link. We provide Internet connectivity to the students, scholars, teachers and staff of the University through campus wide Local Area Network (LAN). The network/architecture comprises of Quidway S9303 (Terabit routing switch) L3 switches, Quidway S-5300 Series L2 Switches and Eudemon 200E Series Router/Firewall. The existing infrastructure is capable of providing high speed Internet connectivity to more than 2000 users round the clock throughout the year.
All the teaching departments, research laboratories, libraries, hostels, offices and other facilities are connected to the Internet and are providing uninterrupted connectivity through more than 500 copper links. These departments and other facilities are connected to the main distribution point in the Server Room of BGSBU-NKN through more than 7 kilometres of fibre optic backbone. The Internet connectivity is being augmented with the help of fibre optic backbone and copper links in the newly constructed buildings and recently opened colleges and departments.
The university has seen a paradigm shift in providing facilities and services to all the stakeholders, particularly students and teachers after the joining of the incumbent Vice Chancellor. In this endeavour the NKN of BGSB University is shortly going to make the entire campus a Wi-Fi zone so as to provide seamless, on-the-go Internet connectivity to all the stakeholders.
