Internet service interruption

Oarnet, The College’s internet service provider, will be upgrading the network link between Canton Ohio and Wooster Ohio on 11/13/2012 starting at 12:00 AM (Midnight). They expect a maximum 30 minute loss of service at some point before 4:00 AM. They will be taking the current link down, testing the fiber and connecting to new hardware. The hardware upgrade will bring 100Gb service to the Wooster area.  The installation of their new switch on our campus will be coordinated with our weekly Tuesday maintenance window ( http://technology.spaces.wooster.edu/it-maintenance-window/).  Thanks for your cooperation and understanding as these necessary upgrades to the OARNet service structure are completed.
