User Installed Network Equipment Policy

Approval from Network Security & Communication Services (NSCS) must be obtained before any network equipment (including wireless devices, hubs, bridges, switches, or routers) is hooked up to the network. If you need such a device, check with NSCS via email to Director_NTS@sonoma.edu. Commonly used workstations do not need approval from Network Security & Communication Services, provided that they do not function as network equipment.

Sonoma State University maintains a campus-wide data network designed to encompass computers in all campus departments and to support communications among them. The Network Security & Communication Services department is responsible for the installation and operation of that network and for the campus connections to regional and national networks via the Internet.
