What is it?
The college’s core network switches will be upgraded during the Christmas break. We expect a network outage starting 10 AM December 26th continuing through 11 AM December 27th. There will be additional outages for brief periods through the week as individual items are tested, updated and upgraded.
What does it mean to me?
During the outage noted above, no Internet, computer or phone services will be available from locations on campus. If you are off-campus, all VCCS Enterprise services normally available through MyVWCC will be available. Some services on campus may be sporadically available during the break as the different components are tested and tuned.
Why is this needed?
IET is working on a major infrastructure upgrade of the VWCC network infrastructure over the December holiday break. During these major upgrades, service interruptions are unavoidable. Please plan accordingly and enjoy the holiday.
