Network Upgrade Pilot Project

April 3, 2019

EIT is about to commence a network upgrade pilot project this month.  

What does this mean?  

Eventually, it means that all field offices will be upgraded with new equipment for connecting your office to your Internet Service Provider and from them, back to campus.  In the short term, it means that several offices have already been selected to participate in an initial pilot project to make sure that the equipment is doing everything it should be doing and can perform in a variety of circumstances before we roll it out more widely.  

The network upgrade will be mostly transparent to you but will provide you with a more robust system, better troubleshooting capabilities, and more options for the future.  When we visit your office will depend on how the pilot project goes, our schedule and your schedule.
