A major milestone was reached this week, over 1000 wireless access points are installed and operational. Only 1200 to go!
Resident Hall Wireless upgrade
The wireless upgrade in the Resident Halls is well under way and on schedule for an early August completion. This upgrade will use the latest 802.11ac technology and will also increase the amount of wireless access points in the resident halls by 83%. The new system will provide a user experience that rivals the wired network.
Campus wide Wi-FI upgrade
The campus wide Wi-Fi upgrade has begun. During the holiday break the Paul College Wi-Fi was upgraded to the latest technology. This is the first step in what is expected to be an 18 month project. The next phase will take place this summer and will upgrade all the resident halls, the final phase will upgrade all remaining Wi-Fi on campus.
Woodside and Eliot Alumni
There will be a short network and phone outage in Eliot Alumni and the Woodside complex during the morning of November 25th. This outage is necessary to facilitate the construction of the new Hamel Rec Center.
Gregg Hall telephone upgrade
During the month of December Gregg Hall will be added to the list of buildings with VoIP service.
Retirement date for voicemail has been extended
The migration to Microsoft UM is projected to be completed in early October. If you don't already have a UNH Exchange account get one now by going to the UNH accounts page https://itsupport.unh.edu/accounts/ and avoid any lapse in voice mail service.
