There will be multiple disruptions to the wired and wireless networks during the maintenance window.

The network team will be performing maintenance on a number of different parts of the network this Saturday. The effects of this work can be broadly described as:

  1. One or more brief outages lasting a few seconds at a time that impact most of campus.
  2. Outages of the wireless network lasting 10-30 minutes will impact a number of buildings.
  3. A small number of buildings will experience complete outages of voice and data communications while software on the network switches is upgraded.

The outages are expected to last approximately 30 minutes. The buildings impacted by this work are:

  • Green Center
  • 1750 Jackson
  • 1600 Jackson
  • Spruce Hall
  • McNeil Hall
  • Shops 2

None of this work is expected to impact the campus datacenter, but services provided by machines in the datacenter may be temporarily unreachable during this work.
