The phone system is back up, and it should stay up during the remainder of the upgrade. We will release additional progress updates through the weekend.
Contractors are upgrading the campus core network. They hope to complete the upgrades and restore network services by 8am on Monday, July 28th. During this time, all services on the college network will be down including the phone system, blackboard, shared folders, portal, and internet access on campus. Email will still be available from off-campus networks. A basic college web page will also be up during the upgrade.
After the upgrade has been completed, the network in academic and administrative buildings will be brought back up first. The network in Caroline Hall will be brought up next, followed by other dorms in order of priority based on occupancy.
