On Saturday Feb 17th, from midnight to 4:30 AM, CCS will perform Tier 1 Maintenance to replace the current campus Internet firewall with a new Next Gen platform. The new hardware will enhance the University’s security posture and will integrate with other appliances that have been, or will be, introduced as part of the multi-year security roadmap initiative.

Due to the nature of the maintenance, a 2 hour interruption of Internet services is expected during this maintenance window. Services such as UoG’s web sites, e-mail, etc. will not be available from off-campus. Users residing on campus will not be able to browse the internet but can access on-campus resources, including services at the CCS Data Center. Telephony services will be available throughout the entire maintenance window.

If you have any questions of concerns, please contact the CCS Help Centre at x58888 or 58888help@uoguelph.ca.
