The Network Operations and Services (NOS) group designs, installs, and operates the campus data network and related systems. We provide connectivity throughout campus, including within the Data Center, plus off-campus locations of University departments. We also manage the interconnection between the campus and regional and national research networks as well as connectivity to the public Internet.

Using the Telecom Catalog
The Berkeley IST Telecom Catalog is where you can order campus voice and data network services. Use your CalNet credentials to log into the Telecom Catalog then select "Service Catalog" from the left navigation bar to place your order.You can also use the Telecom Catalog to view information about the cables installed in your location. You can lookup cables that are in use (connected) as well as those that are installed, but unconnected (and available for use). Go to the "Cables" lookup page on the left-hand navigation bar to access cable data. To see a list of all your IST Services in the Telecom Catalog, select "View My Dept's Services."
In order to place a change, move or delete a service you must have permissions for that processing unit. If you need assistance with access rights, please contact your department access rights administrator (ARA) for approval permission or have them place the request for you. You may also check our Telecom Catalog to find your designated ARA. Please login into the Telecom Catalog and on the left-hand navigation bar, select "Access Rights Administrators" under "Manage My Dept's Services" to find your appropriate ARA.
