IT Services Alerts - Network improvement works, 3rd Floor Arts Building

First Posted: Friday, 17th October 2014, 12.20pm

As part of service improvement works there is a requirement to replace two old data network communications cabinets on the 3rd floor of the Arts Building. The cabinets are not capable of accommodating the latest networking equipment and are also unsecured. The active equipment currently in place is also ‘end of life’ and requires replacement.

The works will begin on Monday 3rd November and take a number of weeks.  There will be no disruption to data network services due to this work.

The works will entail the installation of almost 200 new data cables in a significant number of offices and classrooms on the 3rd floor of the Arts Building.  Safety cordons will be erected during the works and some drilling will be required.  Drilling will be restricted until after 5pm and every effort will be made to minimise any disruption to staff and students.  IS Services would like to apologise for any inconvenience.
