Network Consultation & Installation

MSU Information Technology offers network consulting, engineering, and installation services for MSU departments and units on and off campus. Network services include wired and wireless network design, installation, firewalls, virtual networking, and network security.

Departments may request changes and additions to networking service by using our service request option in our service catalog. Service requests include wall jacks, switches, firewalls and VLANs directly from MSU IT. Repair services to existing networks are also available.

Additionally, MSU IT offers service level agreements (SLAs) to departments and customers.

Wired Network

MSU IT is responsible for the design and implementation of MSU’s backbone network architecture and design and project management of core networking and other major network projects for the MSU campus and its various remote locations.

MSU IT can also review current campus network options and discuss of possible solutions to meet customers’ varying needs. This includes preliminary project scope determination, requirement gathering, and VLAN provisions for requests with minimal complexity.
