5/9 – network hardware replacement

ITS has obtained the hardware to replace what we suspect is the faulty hardware in the network.  We plan to replace the units beginning at 4:30pm on Thursday, May 9.  Replacing the hardware can be done without interruption, however we are sending out this notice should something unexpected occur.  We will notify users through email, Twitter and Facebook if the need arises.  We are cautiously optimistic that this will resolve our repeated and unpredictable short interruptions in service.
