NGN What's New Graphic

The next phase of the Next Generation Network (NGN) project is scheduled for July 29, 2018. At this time, migration to new Data Center cores and related equipment will be performed.

Extended outages for Data Center systems or operations are not anticipated. There may be a short disruption as the cut is made, which would affect the Data Center and access to related resources. NGN teams are committed to minimizing any disruptions as much as possible. Testing and planning are currently underway, and an updated time estimate for any anticipated disruptions will be shared closer to the cut date.

We encourage all Data Center tenants to test their Data Center equipment or systems before and after the core cutover work to ensure systems are operating as expected. If you or your systems are affected following the Data Center core upgrade on July 29, please contact Technology Help.

During the cutover process, please visit U of M System Status for updates. If you have any questions, please contact the NGN team at ngn@umn.edu.
