Scheduled software upgrade

We will be working with Dell and Circle IT to upgrade the software which runs our:

  • core network routers | Sat 28 Oct
  • border gateway routers | Sun 29 Oct

This work will be undertaken between 07:00-08:00 each morning.

Each router performs as a pair and only one will be upgraded at a time. This ensures the University maintains connectivity to both on and off-campus services throughout. Although internet access will not be affected, the network service should be seen as at-risk.

The software upgrade will resolve several background issues and allow us to support the network in a more reliable way.
