ABOUT COMPUTER CENTRE
Tezpur University started using computers from its very
inception in 1994 in its academic activities as well as in the administration. A
Computer Centre (CC) was established in 1997 to facilitate a common computational
resource centre for the academic programmes as well as for maintenance of computing resources
of the university.
Over the years the University has
grown substantially in terms of academic departments and programmes and as well as infrastructure,
therefore, the CC implemented and maintains a Campus-Wide Local Area Network (LAN)
spreads over 261.47 acres of land. The central hub of the Campus LAN is
housed at the CC along with dedicated central servers. All Academic Departments/
Administrative Blocks/ Hostels/ Health Centre/ Library/etc. are connected with
high speed Optical Fiber Cable (OFC) backbones. Internet connectivity is
provided throughout the campus with 1Gbps National Knowledge Network (NKN) link
and a 2Mbps backup Link via ERNET INDIA. Free Wi-Fi facility has been extended
to the hostels and the residential quarters to the extent possible.
The CC maintains two clusters of computer labs and a Central Server Room. One
cluster of CC lab, i.e. Cluster-I, is equipped with 60 latest configured
Desktop Personal Computers(PCs) and is housed at the Academic Complex 2 and the
Cluster-II has about 68 latest configured PCs housed at the School of
Engineering (SoE) complex.
In addition, an another unit of lab (MIC) of about 24 PCs is setup for
specialized trainings and innovative activities which is also housed at the SoE
complex. It also houses Internet Protocol(IP) based Video-Conferencing Facility
which caters to the demands of live interviews, live remote meetings, virtual

Library Server, DHCP Server, NMS Server, Video Streaming Server, etc. of the University. Besides these servers, one
4 processor based High Performance Compute Server (HPC) is dedicated for research community
for high-end computational work. The CC labs are well-equipped with Scanners, Laserjet
Printers, DMP printers and Multi-Media projectors.
The University's Intercom System (IP-PBX) is also administered and monitored by the
CC. A Helpdesk Cell is available for technical
support to over 1000 PC users. The technical team of CC also extends support to
