Nightly IT maintenance will affect Wessex House, levels 1 to 5 from 3 to 14 July 2017

IT maintenance is taking place that will affect the night time availability of IT services on levels 1 to 5 of Wessex House for  two weeks.  An outside contractor will be working from 3 July to 14 July to upgrade the network.  This is an important part of the University’s summer refurbishment plans.

What this means for you:

The network, Wi-Fi and phones will be unavailable, nightly, between 7pm and 5am.  The work begins Monday 3 July and ends Friday 14 July 2017.

No contractor will need access to your office but the work will affect the IT services in Wessex House (Levels 1 – 5).

Many thanks for your understanding while this improvement work is carried out.


Getting connected with corporate Wi-Fi

Operations have installed nearly £400,000 of new networking equipment and around 300 new high speed 4x4 MIMO 802.11ac Cisco access points.

The project involved conducting wireless surveys, planning recommendations and optimisations, after which, the new access points could be installed at over 50 corporate locations.

This large scale wireless upgrade identified the need to provide Wi-Fi access across the campus and was both planned and completed within 6 months. It has since received a lot of positive feedback.
