  2. 2. <ul><li>COM West & BMR Network Upgrade </li></ul><ul><li>Five Topics for Today’s Discussion </li></ul><ul><li>Brief overview of IT support </li></ul><ul><li>The “New” Network </li></ul><ul><li>The Network Upgrade/Migration Process </li></ul><ul><li>Data Management / Network Computing </li></ul><ul><li>A Look to the Future </li></ul>COM Network Upgrade

  4. 4. <ul><li>This is really a new network, not part of the old COM 150.231.XXX.XXX domain. It is much faster and better managed. </li></ul><ul><li>It uses local IP addressing for added security. Network devices do not have a true Internet IP address. NAT routing is used. Direct IP addressing should not be used. </li></ul><ul><li>All IP addressing. Other protocols are not routed (e.g., AppleTalk). </li></ul><ul><li>All ports are switched 100Mbps. Post-port splitting is not allowed. </li></ul><ul><li>Ports are secure. Ports are logically assigned to one device via DHCP. </li></ul><ul><li>Static IP addressing is only allowed for specific devices (printers and shared lab instruments). </li></ul><ul><li>Wireless is included (PSCOMNET). All local WAP’s will be removed. </li></ul>The “New” Network
  5. 5. Wiring Topology
  6. 6. <ul><li>What to Expect! Four Steps… </li></ul><ul><li>Closet Build-out (Ken Rudolph, leader) </li></ul><ul><li>Department wiring (George McLaren, Leader) </li></ul><ul><li>Migration (old to new network) and WAP setup) (Ron Etheridge, leader) </li></ul><ul><li>Wiring “clean up” (George McLaren, Leader) </li></ul><ul><li>Your IT Contact: Jim Shillow (x283830) </li></ul>Network Upgrade/Migration Process
  7. 7. Data Management / Network Computing <ul><li>To get to network resources (file shares, file servers, etc.), you must login to the Hersheymed domain. </li></ul><ul><li>Computers (Mac’s, PC’s) must be “joined” to the domain to permit initial login. On a Mac, this requires Admit Mac. On a PC, this also comes with added software (LanDesk, Antivirus, antispyware). The Migration Team will help you if you want to join. Joining is encouraged, but not mandatory (today). </li></ul><ul><li>Login authentication is not required for an IP address on “wired” devices. Authentication is required for wireless IP access. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Data Management / Network Computing <ul><li>Storing and Safe-guarding Data </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use the Network (it’s fast!), not your local drive. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data back up. Do your research, let IT help you. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“M” Drive (your personal space) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lab share on //aaresearch1 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Department share </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PSU PASS </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Data Management

  11. 11. Data Management <ul><li>Sharing Data </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid desktop file sharing. Avoid per-to-peer networks! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lab share </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Department share </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>BioCore - http:// www.ks.uiuc.edu </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Moving Data – Use a shared space </li></ul><ul><li>Remote Access (IVE) https:// access.hersheymed.net </li></ul>
  12. 12. Future Network Development <ul><li>Enhanced authentication </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Devices and users will require authentication to get an IP address. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Defined access levels </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wired network </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wireless network </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Desktop Videoconferencing (here today, see http://meeting.hmc.psu.edu http://infonet.hmc.psu.edu/mms ) </li></ul>
