What is YNet?
“YNet” is an acronym for “Yukon government Network”.
It is also commonly used to describe a “corporate” service (e.g. YNet Active Directory).
What is the YNet Used For?
YNet is secured network used for:
- Interconnecting all ~250 Yukon Territorial Government buildings and resources;
- Transporting “corporate” business information and I.T. services where YESNet transports “education” business and I.T. services.
What is YNet’s Role in Education?
All school office computers & printers reside on YNet (conversely all non-office computers & printers in schools reside on YESNet).
Why Two Networks?
Simply as a measure to separate (and thus protect) “corporate” and “education” information and business.
Is Wireless (WiFi) Available on YNet?
Yes. Many YG buildings will have a “YG Whitehorse” network used for YG staff and a “YG Guest” network for non-YG access.
