Network Access


  • Only registered devices may be connected to the TRIUMF cabled network.
  • Under no circumstances should network equipment be disconnected from the network unless permission is obtained from those responsible for the equipment. Many devices at TRIUMF may appear unattended, but are accessed remotely.
  • Some network wall-outlets (Ethernet ports) are for special purposes, such as wireless access-points, cameras, and so on. PCs and laptops should not be connected to these Ethernet ports.



There are four wireless networks available at TRIUMF.

  •  eduroam Education Roaming (eduroam) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service for the international research and education community.
