IT Services Alerts - Network upgrade - data network downtime in Arts Building & room 4066 closed, August 25th, 8am-8am

Last updated: Thursday 23rd August 2012, 11.30am

IS Services will be upgrading the data network in the Arts Building on the weekend of the 25th/26th August.  All data network services such as internet access, email and Wi-Fi will be unavailable in the Arts Building from 8am until 8pm on Saturday 25th August.  All areas in the Arts building will be affected with the exception of the concourse and Lecky Library.  This also means the computer room in room 4066 will be closed that day.

The following day, Sunday 26th August, should be considered an ‘at risk’ period for access to these services.

This network upgrade will increase the speed of the data network in the building from 100Mb to 1 Gb to the desktop, and will replace some switching equipment which is no longer supported.

If you have any queries regarding this work and the data network downtime please contact the IS Services Helpdesk.
