Campus Technology Services has tentatively planned an upgrade of network equipment that connects our campus to the Internet on Sunday, March 16, 6am-noon. 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% more 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.
If needed, an alternate date of Saturday, March 22nd from 6am -noon will be utilized.

CTS has made it easier for guests of the College to use the WiFi network while visiting campus.
This semester, individual guests of the College can now register for WiFi access with their campus departmental sponsor. The sponsor can then create a username and password to be used on the “Oswego-Guest” wireless network. It is recommended that guests do not use this network for sensitive transactions as it is an insecure network intended to provide primary access to web-based Internet resources.
CTS will provide this as an interim solution while we continue to improve WiFi access for all faculty, staff, students and guests. This includes capacity planning to introduce WiFi in all academic and residential spaces as well as improving ease of use, while still securing campus resources.
For those faculty and staff wishing to sponsor a guest, please see the Guest Wifi Registration instructions.
For any questions, please contact the Help Desk at x3456 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The interface change that was applied to myOswego yesterday, Wednesday, 11/13 did not totally resolve the registration problems we have been experiencing under heavy load.
CTS has been working with Ellucian, the company that makes the myOswego product. We have a high priority support case opened and will continue collaborating with them until the issue is totally resolved.
Stay tuned as we may need to set aside some time to make further changes.
