Back Bone    Status: Ongoing

BO, CALS, SC, EC, Lecture Hall, HSS, Student Center, SOE, FA, SNHS, LG, FH, Science Annex, and WHB buildings have been migrated to the Nexus. Major support departments located in Business Office, LG building, and Fieldhouse network are now running at 10GB capacity. The rest of the buildings have been migrated to run at 1GB capacity, and are in plans to be configured to 10 GB capacity. Buildings running 1GB capacity do not have switches capable of running 10GB throughput, and must be upgraded to a Cisco 10 GB switch. In addition, Fiber Optic lines running to buildings must be connected to 10GB SFP’s. Assessments of buildings must be performed prior to expanding throughput. Updates will be posted immediately.
