New ICT Initiatives
(a) Upgradation of state of the Art campus LAN , switch infrastructure
The most awaited campus wide LAN infrastructure (Switching Devices) have been commissioned from 11th October,2014 with New High Speed State of the Art Switching Devices to improve the availability, stability, speed and overall performance of the LAN and internet facilities. Presently, all the services are being provided with the new upgraded setup. The service is provided 24X7X365 basis to all the users including all the Live servers kept at various departments inside the campus including Computer Centre, Central Library etc.
(b) Secure Network under NME-ICT:
The University has one high B/W (1GBPS) internet connectivity terminated at computer centre under NME-ICT & NKN project.
For security and safety of the campus wide LAN setup the gateway lab is equipped with high end Router (MX80-Juniper),
fortigate firewall, etc. The forti-analyser 200D has been installed at the Centre.
To protect the campus from external threat, viruses, spam Trend Micro office scan (anti-virus) have been introduced in
server based system and to control the client computer throughout the campus in centralized control system.
(c) Monitoring bandwidth utilization & maintenance of 1 GBPS link under NME-ICT/NKN project:
The prestigious 1 GBPS link had been installed in 2010 with low b/w utilization.
However some direct connectivity and increase of users and new services has increased the
bandwidth utilization even upto 100 MBPS and sometimes 175 MBPS. This has been monitored 24 hours using the firewall and Linux MRTG software.
(d) Wired / WI-FI LAN under NME-ICT/NKN project:
The central Govt. (MHRD) has sponsored project of LAN implement under the project with a total cost of Rs. 50.00 lacs at
Vidyasagar University with only 25% cost sharing. This is making the whole campus LAN to operate in redundant mode,
availability is being increased. Under this scheme LAN facilities will be extended to all classrooms, laboratories & faculties,
Guest house, hostels, Medical Unit, Auditorium etc. However the core switch and other building switch are not included in the project,
it will be purchased from XII plan grant. The necessary purchase order & payment is cleared. The work will start very soon.
(e) Upgradation of State of the Art campus LAN, switch Infrastructure:
Whole campus LAN, all the switches (3-layered) in the entire campus will be upgraded very soon under the XII plan. Necessary proposals and projects are already taken up.
(f) Central Computing laboratory facility:
One Smart central Laboratory will be commissioned very soon in the Computer Centre for use by the regular PG students of various PG departments having insufficient computers to conduct their practical classes to be managed centrally in this lab. for using various NME-ICT services (NPTEL etc).
Virtual A/V Centre
A-Virtual Audio Visual Centre is being established in the Computer Centre to conduct virtual classes,
transmit live lectures and Multimedia materials and generate e-content thereby. The A-V centre may also
be used as various eminent lectures, recording etc. This facility will be offered to all faculty members of
the various departments, all the PG students and other communities of the university so that they can use
the various NME-ICT services in their research and course curricula.
Extention of WI-FI
WI-FI has been extended to Administrative building, Residential campus including guest house.
(i) CCTV cameras surveillance systems have been installed in the campus through Computer Centre
