Internet connectivity interruption for the installation of new Cisco switch/router.
A maintenance window is scheduled from 8AM to 4PM this Sunday, 8/9, for the installation of a new Cisco core switch/router. It is important that the equipment is installed prior to the start of the school year to meet increased school district network bandwidth demands. While several previous e-mails have mentioned the need for an additional Sunday maintenance day this summer, we were only able to confirm a shipment date today from the vendor. While the notice is short we hope that completing the work sooner than delaying it to later in August will inconvenience fewer clients.
During the maintenance window connectivity between the Internet and school district networks/Wayne RESA servers will be interrupted. While the window is 8 hours the expectation is that the overall interruption to service will be much less.
