The Network for Education in Georgia
PeachNet is the statewide communications network supporting all University System of Georgia (USG) Information Technology Services (ITS) efforts. It is the mission-critical foundation that connects all USG institutions and is the basis for the USG’s Integrated Learning Environment (ILE) built from the following enterprise applications:
- Vista Learning Management System
- GALILEO, Georgia’s Virtual Library
- Georgia ONmyLINE, Access to USG’s Online Courses and Programs
- Banner Student Information System
- PeopleSoft Human Resource Management and Financials Systems
- USG Data Warehouse
ITS’s goal is to continually extend communication and collaboration tools for USG faculty, students, and administrators. By evaluating and implementing technologies, ITS has identified new opportunities to provide better, more efficient services at a lower cost to USG institutions.
Quality of Service
Due to the bandwidth provided by the Fiber Project, the USG can now implement Quality of Service (QoS), a means of bandwidth management that identifies categories of network traffic and assigns each category a priority and adequate bandwidth. Categories include voice, interactive video, intra-PeachNet traffic, and general Internet traffic.
