The University of Texas at Austin

Cabling and Wiring

Overview

ITS runs Ethernet and fiber-optic data cables for data, voice, or video for offices, labs, and other facilities at the main UT campus and at the PRC. The physical-layer infrastructure for the university's networking services, departmental networks, underground copper cable plant, and microwave radio links to other university sites in Austin are also part of this service.

Rearranging your office space? It might be necessary to move your cabling.
