Local Area Network (LAN)

To ensure consistent computing productivity, your local area network (LAN) must be available and secure at all times. MedIT network and connectivity services provide all educators, researchers, clinicians, administrators, and students with a fully functioning LAN that allows you to transfer data, access applications, and search the Internet.

Additionally, the MedIT network can provide connectivity to the AHS network through the use of our Trusted Network connection.
