Internet outage this Sunday (Mar. 17, 2013) Update: Cancelled
On Suday, March 17, the Networking group will be installing new equipment on the network at the edge of campus. Between 8:00 am and 11:00 am access to the Internet will be interrupted as cables are moved and the new equipment is installed. During the maintenance window Internet access will go up and down multiple times. Internet connections will be unreliable until maintenance work is completed.
The upgrade will increase campus bandwidth available to the Internet from 650 Mbps to 1 Gbps and will introduce additional redundancy to protect against equipment failure.
Standalone work and access to shared drives from campus computers will not be affected by the outage. Other campus resources such as TitanWeb will suffer delays due to background connections to off-campus sites. Access to UW Oshkosh servers from outside will be interrupted.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, IT will not be able to perform the upgrade that was planned for next Sunday, so there will be no planned internet outage.
