Domain Name System (DNS) converts names (e.g. www.ucdavis.edu) to IP addresses (e.g. 18.104.22.168) that are used by networked devices to locate other networked devices across the Internet. It can be compared to a phone book, allowing the user to enter a user-friendly name, and returning the address for that name.
The campus DNS settings are: Primary: 22.214.171.124 Secondary: 126.96.36.199
InCommon Certificates guard sensitive user information (like credit card numbers) by encrypting the data when processing online transactions. Web servers with SSL certificates indicate that the server can be trusted to handle sensitive information securely.
A Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) facilitates "localized" routing and resource sharing capability for any computer on the campus network even if they are not located in the same physical location. By using MultiVLAN, campus departments can decrease the number of network connections (and the associated costs) needed to support servers and firewalls that span multiple VLANs.
Looking for a care-free wireless solution? Communications Resources will meet your wireless needs with a desktop wireless access point, or custom installation of ceiling or wall mounted access points to provide service to most locations on campus.
