OCIO Network Systems Team

Responsibilities, Services, Metrics and Statistics

The MUSC Network Systems Team, NST, is responsible for the installation, maintenance and upgrades to the MUSC campus network infrastructure including Internet access, MUSC intranet, telemedicine and video conferencing support and MUSC wide area networks. NST provides network connectivity and services for all MUSC faculty, staff and students.

The primary goal of the Network Systems Team is to design, maintain, monitor and operate network infrastructure and services which fully support the mission of MUSC and its core focus on education, patient care and research. NST functions within the organizational structure of OCIO Information Services, led by the Chief Information Officer, Dr. Frank Clark. NST reports to the OCIO Director of Infrastructure Services, Kurt Nendorf.

NST works closely with the other OCIO infrastructure teams to deliver a full range of infrastructure services to MUSC. Network infrastructure is defined as all critical elements that comprise the campus network backbone and those devices, which provide multiple user network connectivity, Internet access and services including authentication servers, DNS, DHCP, campus web servers, LDAP resources and remote access services such as VPN. In addition to the MUSC local area and wide area network, NST engineers are responsible for maintaining 2 statewide networks. The South Carolina Light Rail and the Palmetto State Providers Network. NST also provides telemedicine and telehealth support by managing video conferencing infrastructure on 2 networks and providing endpoint support for both patients and clinicians.

Team members:

 Michael Haschker Sr. Network Engineer  David Bailey Sr. Network Engineer  Steve Caporossi Sr. Network Engineer  Jay McNealy Network Engineer II  Chris Nichols Network Engineer II  David Sisco Sr. Network Engineer  Jonathan Yantis Sr. Network Engineer

State Networks managed and supported by NST Engineers

South Carolina Light Rail – http://www.sclightrail.org/

SCLR is a high speed, 40 gig network used for research and education.

Members include Clemson University, University of South Carolina, The Medical University of South Carolina. MUSC uses the NST supported SCLR to collect research data and conduct daily distance education classes with students at the University of South Carolina. NST Engineers are the primary routing support personnel for the SCLR. Palmetto State Providers Network. http://pspnsc.org/

NST supports 200 statewide sites connected to the PSPN healthcare network used for telehealth and patient care. NST provides the network, video, telemedicine and router support to members using the PSPN network in addition to being the primary support people for telehealth applications on the PSPN.
