Campus Life and Netflix!

What do UD Students do to wind down and relax after a tough day of classes, a hard practice, or all the excitement of a home basketball game?

NETFLIX!

These internet traffic models show a one day example of throughput on our residential network in comparison to Netflix traffic.  It is safe to say our students unwind by binge watching Netflix.  As shown below there are times of the day where 50 to 75% of traffic on the residential network is associated with Netflix. When the internet can sustain a Netflix usage of over 1.5 MBps without crashing, it is clear that UD has built a solid residential network for students to both unwind and to excel in their course work.
