The college is a member of the National Knowledge Network (NKN) which is a high-speed network backbone interconnecting major educational and research institutions. NKN is maintained by National Informatics Network (NIC), Government of India. NKN provides a bandwidth of 1000 Mbps (1 Gbps) to the college. In addition, a 16 Mbps internet connection has been taken from BSNL. This connection is being maintained as a backup to be used in the rare event of an NKN connection failure.
The network traffic between the college intranet and the internet is monitored and controlled through a firewall. Cisco routers and switches are used at the backbone level of the intranet. A fiber-optic backbone has been laid to provide connectivity to various parts of the campus.
The campus is completely connected by WiFi. A Ruckus ZoneDirector 3000 WiFi controller kept in the server room manages the WiFi access. Access points have been deployed throughout the campus so that online facilities like e-journals (which are provided on IP-based access) can be accessed from anywhere within the college premises.
Wi-Fi access will be available for all staff, students, guests
