The Office of Informaton Technology (OIT) manages a reliable, and secure infrastructure of network systems and services in support of FAU's mission.

In conjunction with OIT's Network department in the Boca Raton campus, OIT-Broward Technology Services (BTS) help supports the Broward campuses segment of the FAU backbone, which is a critical university resource providing data communication to your laptop and/or desktop.

All the buildings in Broward campuses are equipped with high-speed Cisco switches that can provide up to 1 GB service to your desktop. Furthermore, all Broward campuses are equipped with wireless access points throughout all common and instructional areas.
