As of the given date, 96 % of the rooms of the overall capacity of MU halls of residence are covered.
The backbone among individual halls of residence is provided by optical distribution of the university network administered by the Institute of Computer Science and is generally designed for 1 to 10 Gbps. The distribution between a socket in a room and the first active component has a maximum transfer rate of 100Mbit at each halls of residence.

Restrictions on the net
The network can be used providing the following university rules are respected :
- The Directive on Using Computer Network of Masaryk University and its Administration - MU Directive no. 6/2011
For computers accessing the Internet via routers with system Aneta see the following:
Data transfer limit / FUP
Data transfer (in and out) must not exceed the limit of 15 GB per day between 0:00 - 23:59 (+/- 5 minutes). Within the university network (IP 147.251.xxx.xxx), there is no data transfer limit. Transfer statistics available on webpages Aneta. If the limit is exceeded, the speed is decreased to 1 Mbps for the rest of the day + 3 following days.
Handling IP or MAC (HW) addresses
If there occurs a manipulation, by a user, with an IP address or a MAC address,
a theft of an IP or a MAC address, it will be evaluated in accordance with MU directive No. 6/2011 The Directive on Using Computer Network of Masaryk University and its Administration

Blocking of incoming communication and SMB
The outgoing communication from a PC within PKS to the Internet (and university network) is accepted, except for communication using RPC, SMBFS and SMTP (ports 135, 137-139, 445 and 25), which is blocked. Therefore it is possible to use any services related to the network (e.g. WWW, FTP, SSH, Skype etc., except for sharing the Windows system).
As for the incoming communication from the Internet (and university network) to PCs connected to PKS, is implicitly banned for security reasons (except for communication within one subnet and ICMP packets). The user can allow the ports by an application for allowing the ports. The application is available after logging into Aneta.
