News from NGN: Data Center Core Upgrade Scheduled for September 16, 2018

August 28, 2018
NGN What's New Graphic

The next phase of the Next Generation Network (NGN) project is scheduled for September 16, 2018. At this time, migration to new Data Center cores and related equipment will be performed.

Work will begin at 8 a.m. The team is anticipating that the Data Center network will experience approximately a one minute service disruption around that time. Failover and regression testing will be conducted throughout the day, and testing may cause five second network service disruptions in the Data Center.

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 September 16, please contact Technology Help.

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