Obituary

Written by Executive Board, 2022-07-27. Permalink

Today we heared with dismay about the death of our honorary member Eberhard Mittag. With his passing, we lose far too early a long-time pioneer of the Dresden Student Network and a central driver in the expansion of the network in Dresdens student residences. For many years, Eberhard Mittag, as an IT contributor of the Studentenwerk, was committed to a close and cooperative collaboration with the AG DSN. He thus enabled a continuity in our work that would not have been possible without his foresight, his extraordinary support and, last but not least, his impressive networking.

Even after his retirement, he always remained loyal to the AG DSN through his commitment, as a supporter and also as a welcome guest. We will miss him all the more with his manifold ideas and his humor.

Our deepest sympathy goes to his family and relatives.

On behalf of the entire AG DSN, the board of the AG DSN

Upgrade Uplink

Written by Julian Fölsch, Marcel Beyer, 2022-03-26. Permalink

Thanks to recent upgrades made by the ZIH, our uplink was upgraded to two redundant 10 Gigabit connections. This is 200x faster than the common household DSL connection. Until now, we were connected with 10 Gigabit and 4 Gigabit backup to the network of TU Dresden. Thanks to this upgrade, a good connection to the university network and the internet is secured for the future, the old 10 Gigabit connections load regularly was up to 80%

We would like to thank the ZIH for providing the connection to the university network and the good cooperation.

Integration of the dormitory Fritz-Löffler-Straße 12 in the AG DSN network

Fritz-Löffler-Straße 12

Written by Jakob Müller, 2021-10-02. Permalink

In October, the dormitory Fritz-Löffler-Straße 12 will be integrated into the network of AG DSN. We welcome all residents and hope that we can further improve the quality of the network.

Those who have already had network access through the Studentenwerk in the past will continue to receive it free of charge. New tenants must become a member to receive network access.

During October, the installed floor switches will be replaced on all floors, as well as the network sockets. This should enable Gigabit access for all rooms. The conversion is always done floor by floor (per entrance).

For the conversion, the cables in the room (between network socket and end device) must also be replaced. Further details will follow. In addition, all end devices must be reconfigured so that the IP address is obtained automatically via DHCP and is no longer statically configured. This can be changed over as early as October 1 and must be done at the latest after the network socket has been replaced.

Experience has shown that minor problems occur when migrating approximately 500 residents to the AG DSN system. If your connection does not work as expected, contact our support team. We will be happy to help you!
