The information and internet system of PE Study Program is connected to the main network system of ITB. The internet network system of ITB is managed by Unit Sumberdaya Informasi (USDI, Information Resource Unit). USDI is also responsible for maintaining the main ITB servers (official www site, DNS, gateway etc.) including the IP numbers for each study program in ITB. Currently, the main internet academic and research connection, ITB relies on Asian Internet Interconnection Initiatives (AI3). AI-3 is a C-band satellite link with total bandwidth of 11 Mbps, constructed by Keio University and NAIST (Nara Institute of Technology) of Japan.
To have an internet connection, academic society members should register and provide a monthly payment of around Rp 10,000 or US$ 1.0 for 300 MB/day limit access. This limit value is considered adequate as the local data transfer (download/upload) is not counted. A total internet bandwidth for normal usage is usually 100-200 mb/day.
PE students’ access to the internet can be done in PE Computer labs or by using wi-fi access within the vicinity of PE building. The wi-fi spots are available in every floor of the PE building.
