Network Drop Request

Service Overview 

A network drop is a connection point in a network.  The term generally refers to a local area network (LAN).  Network drops are typically wall outlets with an Ethernet jack that a computer or other network device, including phone, printer, etc. can plug into.  Generally, a Faculty or Staff member will have either 1 or 2 network drops in his/her office as both the workstation (PC or Mac) and phone (Cisco IP Phone 8851) can share the same network drop.  However, certain instances (printer, additional employee sharing your office, etc.) will require an additional network drop.
