I&IT will begin a major network upgrade on Tuesday, Nov. 9, replacing old equipment and improving reliability of data connectivity. The upgrade process will affect more than 40 buildings on campus, starting with Engineering Building 9, and continue through March 2011.
A detailed schedule of the upgrade is available on the Infrastructure Terminal Resources Project website.
I&IT staff, working with AT&T, will be replacing the equipment in the telecommunications closets of each building during business hours. Internet, email and access to fileservers should not experience significant disruptions, says Denny Mosier, director of I&IT Support.
“Hopefully, people won’t experience any downtime. At most, it’ll be a few minutes,” Mosier says.
Email reminders will be sent to building occupants, and signs will be posted on classroom and faculty/staff offices.
