Technology is an important tool for those who work and learn at George Fox, and the network helps to deliver many of these tools. When it works at its best the network is our invisible and trustworthy assistant.
Network connections are provided in every office and residence room on our campuses. There are also network connections (wired and/or wireless) in all of our classrooms and at public areas in most of our buildings. Behind these connections is a 100 megabit (or faster) ethernet network and, on the Newberg campus, an all-fiber network between our buildings. This Internet connection is filtered (to block pornography) and "shaped" (to give higher priority to e-mail and web, for example).
The Newberg and Portland campuses are serviced through fiber Internet connections. All of the remote learning centers are connected to the Newberg campus with an encrypted point-to-point tunnel.
The Boise, Redmond, and Salem centers contract for their Internet connections. The information offered below does not usually apply to these centers.
