ISS Networks are in the process of upgrading most of their networking equipment across campus, including the equipment that services Computing Science in Claremont Tower and Daysh. They plan to upgrade that equipment this Thursday 24th between 17:30 and 19:30. During that two-hour window, wired networking will be disrupted.
Due to the history of the wifi in these CS areas, I think wireless networking will also be impacted. However, I believe that wifi will not be inactive at the same time as wired switches. Therefore, if you plan to work during this period, you should be able to use one of wired or wireless at any given time. I’m waiting on confirmation of this.
The benefit of this work for CS will hopefully be the resolution of some long standing network problems, particularly on the 10th floor of Claremont Tower.
Please direct any questions or comments about this work to me (Jonathan) directly.
