ITS recently completed network refresh projects for both Wilbur Cross and the Student Union.
The university data network, consisting of both wired and wireless components, is a critical service supporting the institutional mission of research, teaching, learning, and outreach. Our wired infrastructure is unevenly deployed and handicapped by aging equipment that is mostly at, or past, end of life. ITS chose Wilbur Cross and the Student Union because they had some of the oldest equipment and because updates would benefit the community broadly. We identified internal funds and replaced all of the networking equipment over the winter break using a mix of internal and external labor. Both projects were planned to minimize disruption. Pending a larger, more comprehensive capital program, ITS will selectively pursue additional locations subject to available resources.
