Network changes will make Internet services unavailable to and from the University on Saturday, July 27, starting at 7 a.m. and lasting perhaps a few hours, advises Information Technology Services.
Outages will encompass all network services — websites and email, UWinsite, Blackboard.
Both wired and wireless networks will be affected across the entire campus, including downtown sites. In addition, the downtown campus will lose network connectivity to the main campus during this time. Telephone calls to these buildings will not be available, but there will be a limited ability to call out.
The Research Data Centre in the Leddy Library will temporarily disconnect from its ORION connection until restored during the maintenance window.
IT Services anticipates that connectivity will be restored well before the end of the maintenance window at noon.
