Connected In der Au to the dormitory network

Last Saturday (2018-11-10) we've connected the dormitory In der Au in Stuttgart-Untert├╝rkheim to our network.

The new dormitory is connected with 10 GBit/s to our core network. We are currently investigating if the network outlets in the individual rooms are working properly. In some cases the outlets may be defective due to the usual wear and tear and are only capable of 10% (100 MBit/s of 1000 MBit/s) of the possible speed. Due to the previous overall uplink connection this was probably unnoticed.

If you live in the In der Au dormitory and notice that your device only has a link speed of 100 MBit/s (also called FastEthernet) instead of 1000 MBit/s (1 GBit/s or GigabitEthernet) please send an email to so we can have a look at the individual outlet in your room.
