Network Centre PDF Print E-mail


Communication to the outside world is of utmost importance  and that too when you are sitting in a place which is located far away from the  main city. To keep oneself update, various resources are required and one among them is Internet.

The University has a full-fledged Network center developed on Linux, Solaris and Microsoft servers. This centre serves as the control point for the Internet facility available in the University. SMVDU has commissioned Wi Fi connectivity in academic and student residential area recently. The faculty residential area has been connected to the network centre through our own broadband facility. The Network covers all departments, hostels, administrative offices, medical centre, guest house and faculty residences as well.

Since the University’s initial setting up of campus-wide network in 2005, active users of the network facilities have increased many folds and the network-based applications have increased phenomenally. This is a welcome change in the university’s academic environment. This has prompted the University administration to rapidly increase the network facilities to all the sections of the university community. Network Centre has been given the responsibility of running the university’s Intranet & Internet services
