The College of Staten Island provides the college community a reliable, secure and efficient network.

The CSI Network is made up of Cisco multilayer switches and routers. We are providing a 10 gigabit Local Area Network (LAN) backbone utilizing single and multimode fiber optics.  With 1G to the buildings we provide access for approximately 3500 desktop running Windows 2007. This high-speed backbone provides connectivity to the Internet and network resources which are secured with multi-Vendor technologies. The campus has a 10G connection to the Internet and will soon have redundant 10G circuits.

We work to maintain a safe environment with vulnerability scanning, ASA and bandwidth management devices. With redundancy and in-house support we have a network that can be depended on to provide safe access.

Wireless Access

  • "CSI unplugged", wireless access is via a valid CSI username and password. The use of ClearPass technology will provide for gatekeeper access for multiple devices and simultaneous logins.
  • The wireless network can be accessed from any of the academic or administrative buildings.  
  • CSI wireless Access Points are 802.11a/b/g/n capable. The 802.11ac standard is being implemented to provide speed and increase capacity.
  • All faculty, staff, and students may access the network by using their FLAS and SLAS accounts (same User ID and password used to access email).
