Information Technology Services (ITS) offers Video and Teleconferencing Services. ITS is responsible for supporting point to point and multipoint video conference connections across campus or with other institutions off campus.
ITS utilizes a high speed connectivity bandwidth Internet, particularly the Orion and CA*net4, to enable IP (Internet Protocol) based connectivity (ISDN connectivity is provided by a 3rd party for a fee).
