We are currently experiencing some problems with the stability and speed of our network.

We are trying our best to find the errors and are in contact with the ZIH (TUD) for a quick solution.

Update: The cause of the problems is a construction site at Barkhausenbau, our uplink is currently limited to 1Gbps. ZIH hopes to reestablish the usual 10Gbps connection by Thursday.

Office hours April 1st

To speed up the registering of all the new people arriving at Borsbergstraße, Wundtstraße and Zellescher Weg, our office at Wundtstraße 5 will be open on Friday (2016-04-01) from 10am to 6pm.

But not only new members are welcome, we are always looking for new volunteers. If you would like to see and learn how a network for 3000 users is run, have a look!

New finance regulation

Written by Felix Wollert, 2016-03-20. Permalink

According to the plenary meeting on March 9th, a new, uniform finance regulation will take effect from April 1st 2016. Beforehand, amount and mode of the contributions differed depending on the local division of the AG DSN.

Summary: The simplest method for you to pay is to transfer 21€ to the respective bank account at the beginning of each semester.

Details:

  • Contributions are due monthly
  • The contributions are due the last day of each month
  • If the membership starts after the 14th of a month, the contribution for this month is omitted
  • The contribution amount is 3.50€, which is equivalent to 21€ per semester

The main motivation for this change is to make the contributions more uniform and fair. Members who stay only for a few months will only have to pay for the time they are actually using the network, no registration fee is due anymore.

Furthermore we are working hard to establish the same high-quality (gigabit to each room) network everywhere, especially at the formerly cheaper Gerok-, Borsberg- and Zeunerstraße. We have already put substantial effort into these upgrades.

Finally, uniform regulations will help us to save on time spent on administrative tasks, so that we can provide faster responses on support inquiries and work more on technical improvements.

You can find the full regulation here, please feel free to contact us.

Hardware upgrade

Today from 7pm onward we will swap out the active components of our network at Zeunerstraße. This will result in network outages, as always we will try to keep these at a minimum.

After restructuring the cabling at Zeunerstraße lately, we now follow up with the active components. Our aim is the introduction of a unified administration for the majority of the students' network, to make sure we can offer you short support response times and a reliable network in the future. If you have any questions, please get in contact!

Hey technophiles, finally Germany has managed to get into the FTTH Council rankings for the first time. You can read more about what this means and how the development of fibre optic infrastructure is going in this article.

Fun Fact: We have been using fiber optics in our student halls now for years ;)
