CTS originally scheduled a campus network outage for Sunday, March 16 to upgrade network equipment that connects our campus to the Internet. This has been postponed due to delays in the arrival of equipment to campus.
The upgrade will now be scheduled on the fallback date of Saturday, March 22 from 6am – noon. A new fallback date has not been determined should the equipment continue to be delayed or there are issues with the installation.
As a reminder, during this timeframe:
- all connections originating from on-campus to the Internet will be unavailable
- all connections originating from the Internet to any campus network service will be unavailable
- any service requiring a SUNY Oswego login will be unavailable.
This upgrade is needed in order to provision additional Internet bandwidth for SUNY Oswego. When the upgrade is completed, there will be 25% additional Internet bandwidth than what we currently have.
In addition, this upgrade will position SUNY Oswego to increase Internet network services more rapidly in the future to support the growth needs of academic and residential clients.
