UPDATE 07.22.20 -- The network outage scheduled for tonight, July 22, has been postponed. We have just learned that UW SysNet will be doing work on the SysNet network involving multiple campuses beginning at 5:00PM . While their work should not impact customers, it is too risky to attempt our work at the same time. We will let you know when the new network outage date is set. Thank you for your patience.

Original post:

On Wednesday evening, Jul. 22, ITS will be performing firewall upgrades needed to prepare for the Fall 2020 semester.  Starting at 7:00 p.m. there will be brief Internet outages while the Platteville campus network is transitioned to new equipment.  These brief interruptions will impact connections on the Platteville campus as well as off-campus VPN access for all three UW-Platteville campuses, including Richland and Baraboo.

We anticipate this work will be completed by 9:00 p.m.   We appreciate your patience and understanding.
