*** NOTICE OF (ITS) MAINTENANCE across campus – Planned Extended Network Outage ***

WHAT: Planned Disruption to Network Availability in order to upgrade network

As you are aware, ITS Network Services is in process of replacing our core network. We successfully finished step 1 (physical connection changes) in March and step 2 (expanding addressing capability) early morning on May 7.

Due to the required extended network outage needed for step 3 (changing of routing), we recently met with the major functional areas on campus to select the best time period to perform. The weekend of June 23-24 has been selected with an expected start time of 5:00 pm. We will continue to work with the functional areas on planning for this outage and for the verification of their systems once the maintenance has been completed.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause while we make these significant improvements.
