Planned Network Maintenance

August 2013

 


During the month of August, OIT will perform a series of core network upgrades in support of the University’s Network Improvement Project.

Normal datacenter services – such as email, telephony, and internet access – will be impacted during these upgrades.  To minimize the effect on your daily life, we have scheduled three separate Friday night upgrade windows.  Here are the details:
