Ethernet Port Activation

Effective July 1, 2006, there will be no monthly fees for basic data network services. These services are covered under the Technology Connection Charge (TCC) paid annually to USC ITS by Viterbi School for each benefit-eligible employee (faculty, staff, and RA/TAs) whose payroll home department affiliation is the Viterbi School.

The TCC does not include: Ethernet port activations, installation or relocation of network connections, wiring upgrades--except as part of the university-wide network upgrade, and other specialized services. Each of these services will be charged to the unit based on the actual cost of the service.
