Network maintenance (consisting of two projects) will be performed on Thursday, July 18 from 6:00 p.m. – midnight.
The first project includes upgrading the firmware on our border-routers. The service impact should be minimal - but there may be brief points during the maintenance window when traffic could be affected between campus and the Internet.
The second project includes hardware upgrades to the firewalls servicing the faculty-staff wired networks on campus. Starting at 6pm there will be two brief periods where traffic to/from wired faculty-staff networks will be affected. Traffic between datacenter networks should be unaffected.
