Keep the following in mind
You may find your device becomes active prior to the completion time. If this does occur, your network service should still be considered ‘at risk’ up until 18:00 on Tue 19 Feb.
Some devices (such as printers) may need further configuration once the network equipment has been replaced. Work to update such devices will carried out on the days following the migrations.
There will be no access to the wired network and disruption to the wireless network. If having internet access on the day of your migration is essential to your work, we advise that you relocate away from the area being migrated.
Migrations will affect all client devices such as PCs and laptops, office desk phones, printers, building management systems etc connected to the University network.
Actions – if you’re using a:
Managed computers (Staff Desktop)
Take no action for these devices post-migration. They should automatically connect to the new wired network but may need to be rebooted if they have been switched on throughout the change.
Reporting issues / getting help
Once the work is complete, contact the Service Desk by phone on extension 88000 or online via Help4U.
All Wellcome Trust activities will run on the University’s new, next-generation network following the migration.
