For security and availability reasons, the telecommunications system is operated using a separate data network on separate switches. The system consists of a number of autonomous nodes in a network of nodes, and it is redundantly connected to the local telephone network in order to ensure reachability of RWTH Aachen.
The University Hospital is integrated in the phone node network of RWTH Aachen. Also connected are FH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich.
Operation of the network includes maintenance of hard- and software in the individual nodes and the securing the connections as outline above. Administrative tasks include the configuration of end devices (set-up, relocation, removal), analysis of errors in case of problems, provision of accounting data to the University Administration, and ensuring the integrity and up-to-dateness of the different data systems such as the CAMPUS phone directory.
