Steps to Mitigate Possible Campus Risks
However, unanticipated issues can arise due to new combinations of events and processes. With due diligence and application of lessons learned from the previous three router replacements, the project team is confident of dealing with obstacles in a timely manner.
Core Router Replacement Project Status
Three out of the four core routers on campus have been replaced in recent months. The earlier stages of the project experienced some delays due to technical difficulties, and the timing of critical university events and business processes. The technical issues have since been resolved and plans are in place to complete the process by this weekend.
The 100 GB Innovation Network Project
The replacement of the four core routers will enable the university to make larger infrastructure improvements in the future. As one of the FY14 University IT Priorities, the 100 GB Innovation Network project will significantly upgrade the university's capability to provide cutting-edge speed and facilitate large scale data transmission.
This will be accomplished in the following four stages:
Once the core routers are replaced, work will proceed to the subsequent stages of this project.
