System Computing Services provides access to both the commodity Internet (I1) and the high-speed research network known as Internet2 and the National Lambda Rail (NLR) to authorized entities over its regional WAN network.
Standard Internet service includes connection to the commodity Internet through a backbone network that is redundant and geographically diverse at throughput levels of up to 10 Gbps.
Internet connectivity is available to authorized entities 24 hours a day, seven days a week, excluding scheduled and unplanned outages. Planned outages must be approved by SCS management and typically occur during standard maintenance windows. Although alternate network paths typically maintain service availability, the customer will be notified of planned outages through direct e-mail communication and the standard weekly communication from the SCS Service Desk.
