Additional work needed to stabilise wireless service, 9.45am, 17 April

Maintenance badge

[16 April 2015]

Following the break in eduroam service on Tuesday 14th April we now need to conduct work to stabilise the service.

The work will take place on Friday,17 April at 9.45am and involves re-connecting hardware that failed on Tuesday, resulting in the wireless problems we saw. The hardware has now been replaced and will be brought back into service.

In theory, no interruptions to service should occur.

However, in light of the recent incident we are being cautious. The worst case scenario is that the connection is not successful and work is needed to identify and fix a problem. Potentially this could cause a break in wireless services of around one hour from 9.45am on Friday.

We are doing all we can in preparation for the work to reduce the likelihood of a break.

Many thanks for your patience while we complete this work.
