• Fixed network access

  • Devices with network connection in the network of KIT (KITnet) communicate via this service and can access the internet and intranet, guest network, and contractors’ network.

The fixed network of KIT is the basis for KIT’s IT supply. The user-side network connection is provided in the form of data sockets on the premises of KIT. From the technical point of view, the network is made up of floor, building and area distributors that are connected with each other via the core network. High-performance internet connections are provided for communication with external resources.

The service includes the connection of physical resources to the fixed network. Depending on the local circumstances, there are electrical interfaces (10/100/1000 Mbit/s as TP types) or optical interfaces (multimode glass fiber).


Campus North: To activate a data socket, the IT representative (IT-Beauftragter – ITB) of the respective institute is required to send an informal email or service request ticket to the NET operations team.

Campus South: To activate a data socket, please use the application for activation of data sockets (only for persons in charge of DNSVS).

Changes or Cancellations
