Doug Green, Manager

The infrastructure team designed, constructed, and operates a 35-site Wide Area Network (WAN) that provides virtually unlimited bandwidth to all of the USNH institutions (UNH, KSC, PSC, GSC) and Dartmouth College, as well as 1 Gbps service to the Community College System of New Hampshire and a number of non-profits around the state. These services include redundant connections to the internet and Internet2 as well as a dedicated science DMZ that is currently in construction.
