Networking and emerging technologies play an important role in the day-to-day administration of higher education's information technology networks. Resources covered in this topic include advance networking and telecommunications, such as Internet2 and VoIP, as well as middleware, streaming media, network infrastructure and equipment, wireless technology, and bandwidth management. You'll also find resources on many aspects of the World Wide Web, including portals, search engines, Web administration, and content management.

In addition, public and corporate policies related to networked information and telecommunications have a direct impact on campus networks that support instruction and research. For more information about the major issues for this policy portfolio, visit the EDUCAUSE Policy networking page.
