OIT is increasing the university bandwidth capacity

OIT is upgrading the university's Internet connection to provide more bandwidth capacity for both commodity Internet and Internet2. The upgrade will occur on Saturday night November 9th beginning at midnight and extending into the early morning hours of Sunday November 10th. The existing Internet failover circuit should prevent us from losing Internet connectivity during the cutover, but since there are several outside parties involved, it is hard to predict with certainty that an outage will not occur. Users may experience degradation in Internet services and potentially a loss of Internet services for an hour or more.
