A campus network is proprietary set of LANs or interconnected LANs that serve an organization. Typically, it encompasses a set of buildings near one another but can also include multiple site locations over wide areas. These buildings and site a connected by a fiber optic network known as the campus backbone.
The campus backbone connects multiple buildings or sites together to create your local area network. Environmental and installation challenges require a robust cabling infrastructure to provide a network that is reliable, meets growing bandwidth demands and is quickly deployed.
