The network at Charles André, historical "Observatoire de Lyon"

The computer service set up the local network architecture since 1991 and has expanded it ( 7 buildings linked via optical fibers) . The network is distributed in the rooms from cabinets or boxes containing the active hardware). The CISR was in charge of the link to the campus network via "LyRES" the metropolitan network "LyRES". En 2015, the CIRS take in charge the active hardware (switches) for a better homogeneous, centralized management.
