Campus DHCP/DNS and IPAM Services

DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol is a protocol for automatically assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network using a defined range of numbers.

DNS
Domain Name Service is an Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses.

IPAM
Internet Protocol Address Management is a database system for planning, tracking, and managing IP address space.

DHCP/DNS and IPAM services that simplify IP address configuration and management are available at no cost to all campus units.

The services are suitable for any unit that needs to assign and track IP addresses for their computers, printers, IP phones, or other devices that connect to the Internet.
