There is a Network Infrastructure upgrade scheduled on Saturday 7:00am thru Sunday at 4pm on the weekend of February 1st/2nd.

This is a large overhaul of our network infrastructure to upgrade from 1GbE to 10GbE. This will result in a campus wide network outage across all our buildings. When the project is completed it will improve stability, increase network speeds and expand on redundancy between all campus buildings.
