Network upgrades performed during campus closure
Thursday, September 3, 2020
Though much of campus was closed during the spring and summer semesters, the EITS Network Operations Center (NOC) was able to perform a wide range of maintenance and upgrade tasks to the network remotely.
A total of 650 network switches were upgraded to the latest code to improve security and stability. Another 525 switches were migrated to a new isolated environment to improve security and manageability.
The EITS NOC also facilitated in the moves of several departments across campus, including the Small Business Development Center, the Innovation Gateway and the OneSource Help Desk, in addition to installing networking equipment into the recently renovated Brumby Hall.
The EITS NOC also worked with campus units to bring the COVID-19 testing site at Legion Pool and Auxiliary Services’ new campus food trailers online. We continue to provide support to users at those locations.
