ResNet Bandwidth Utilization (Last 24 Hours)
Scheduled Outages & Planned Maintenance
Tuesday November 19, 2013: ResNet Internet connection increased from 310 – 520 Mbps
uTech Network Team has been working on increasing the available bandwidth for the ResNet Internet connection. At this time the ResNet Internet connection has been increased from 310 Mbps [Mega bits per second] to 520 Mbps. We will continue our efforts to increase the available bandwidth for the ResNet Internet connection, however further improvements and obtaining our goal of a 1 Gbps [Giga bits per second], also known as 1024 Mbps, Internet connection for ResNet require the replacement of several pieces of network equipment. We have begun the process of requesting the new equipment and hope to have it installed in the near future.
Monday November 18, 2013: ResNet Bandwidth Upgrade Project - Phase#1
Network Group will be performing some network changes in attempt to improve ResNet bandwidth. These changes are planned to start today Nov 18th at 3PM and might last until Wednesday Nov 20th (to make sure everything is working properly and do the final touches). During the change period bandwidth & Internet speed may fluctuate for WIU-GUEST users in the residential buildings. We do not expect network outages during the change period.
Thursday October 03, 2013: ResNet DNS server maintenance
The Network Team will be performing maintenance on the ResNet DNS servers between 8:00 - 11:00 am on October 3, 2013. Servers will be patched and rebooted one at a time and tested before the next server is updated. ResNet has three (3) active DNS servers and all clients receive all three servers from DHCP so there should not be any outages from a customer point of view.
Tuesday August 27, 2013: Campus and ResNet Internet Egress Maintenance
The Network Team will be performing maintenance on the campus and ResNet packet shapers. The changes consist of cleaning up outdated entries and increasing the ResNet Internet bandwidth from 265 Mbps to 310 Mbps. The maintenance will occur on Tuesday August 27, 2013 between 5:30 and 7:00 am.
