Upgrade to Wireless Provision (some downtime)

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

This is particularly relevant to tablet users on the Morning of Tuesday 30 October.

Please refer to the CICS Status pages

In order to increase the number of simultaneous connections available on the wireless network, and also take the opportunity to prepare it for the release of Windows 8, CICS need to perform significant maintenance work on theĀ  eduroam and guest wireless networks. This will result in both these wireless networks being unavailable across the entire campus for up to two hours.

CICS propose to carry out this maintenance between 06:00 and 08:00 on Tuesday 30th October. During this time the wireless networks may appear to return, but could disappear again without notice. Therefore the wireless networks should not be used at all for important work during this maintenance period. Note particularly the possible effect on any early morning meetings, especially for those who use mobile devices rather than paper!
