These are the only authorized switches which may be used on campus. Additional data equipment will be evaluated on a as needed basis, but must be a Cisco device, no exceptions.  In addition to the above, Cisco switches need to be configured into the network core such that traffic flows can be managed in an orderly manner. As a result of the above, the planning for grant or administrative budgetary purposes, and acquisition of Cisco switching technology must be reviewed and approved by Network Operations (x7063, 7008) The following lists those workgroup switches and switch accessories authorized for purchase for use on the DSU GSVN: Part Number Description Usage WS-3560 Cisco 24/48 Port enterprise switch End station connectivity WS-4500 Cisco 48/96 Port enterprise switch End station connectivity WS-2950 Cisco 24/48 Port enterprise switch End station connectivity WS-3550 Cisco Bandwidth aggregator Connects several switches WS-6500 Core network equipment Connects buildings and floors Feasibility Study and Planning Regardless of any order or plan to order Cisco switching technology, and planning or implementation of such must be studied and reviewed by qualified and authorized DSU Information Technology personnel. DSU IT staff is available to assist you in this process. DSU network engineers can assist you in your planning in many ways, to include: Analysis and projected performance modeling of proposed   Cisco switched solution relative to your planned application Physical and logical connectivity planning such as fiber   optics, wire centers, classroom wiring, etc. Power and safety requirements Network security issues Other issues which may impact your planned application   and/or the DSU GSVN Physical Security Issues Any switch installed on campus must be installed in a secure manner either within a secure data room.  All environmental issues must be addressed (air condition, heating, ventilation, security) prior to installation of the data equipment.  This is necessary in order to ensure not only physical security of the technology, but also the security of your data which will transverse the campus network. Network operations will have 24/7 access to the data closet (IDF) at all times.  It is recommended a badge reader be installed at the location to monitor and track access. Installation and Maintenance The installation of all Cisco network switches must be managed by DSU IT staff as it relates to your project. Manufacturer's extended maintenance (SmartNet) must be paid for as part of this acquisition for the first three years of operation.  

Applied Optics Center

Applied Optics Center An advanced technology center authorized by the State's 21st Century fund. Purpose: Facilitate the formation of strategic development alliances among primarily Delaware-based organizations, and pursue the development and commercialization of advanced optics based products. Initial focus is on laser diode devices and laser spectroscopy. This Center is organized as a non-profit Delaware corporation, Applied Optics Center of Delaware, Inc.(AOC). The AOC Board of Directors represents key industry sponsors (Dade-Behring, Altos, and B&W Tek) and Delaware State University and has met monthly. The Center is housed at laboratories in the Physics Department of Delaware State University. One laboratory is fully operational and the second is ready for occupation. One PostDoc is working with Dr. Melikechi at DSU and a graduate student is working for AOC with Prof. Watson at the University of Delaware. A second PostDoc and two additional graduate students are being sought. Computers and general laboratory equipment are in place and three of the four projects currently planned have commenced. Relationships are being developed with other Optics Centers. We are already addressing the issue of Center sustainability by identifying the core competencies on which the future of AOC will be built and identifying processes for grant applications by AOC and its members.

Even when no copyright symbol is in evidence, every creative work is protected by copyright. Whether you are interested in displaying a graphic from someone else's web site or protecting your own creative efforts, it is useful to understand the federal laws and University policies that protect original works against plagiarism or theft. Fair Use Federal copyright law allows for fair use (without permission) of copyrighted material for educational purposes. To determine whether use of copyright material falls under Fair Use guidelines, there are four factors to consider. To a certain extent, stricter adherence to any one of these factors can compensate for liberties taken with another. The following is the full text of the fair use statute from the U.S. Copyright Act. Section 107 of the Copyright Act of 1976. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use "Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified in that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. "In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -- the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes; the nature of the copyrighted work; the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and  the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors."
