Internet Connection Upgrade and Disruptions!
On Monday at 8:15 there will be a brief interruption in Drew's connection to the internet.
This interruption will not interrupt on-campus connectivity to local resources such as network drives, moodle, or the community forum.
The disruption is happening because we are putting new hardware in place to improve security and prepare for an increase in internet bandwidth. There will be a second disruption after 5:30 PM one day next week as we work with our network service provider to transition from 100 megabit service to 1000 megabit/gigabit service. This upgrade should improve the usability of the internet connection at Drew, especially during heavy-use times. We will send out an email once we know when the upgrade will happen.
If we could perform these upgrades without disruption we would, but unfortunately a few short disruptions will happen.
