Internet/WiFi (incl Eduroam) Interruptions 2000-2400 GMT 15/01/16 to enable Capacity Doubling

Information Services will be upgrading the Edinburgh Campus’s Internet and wireless services (including Eduroam) this Friday evening. These changes will allow us to add a second Internet connection, doubling the speed and capacity available to students and staff, and also enabling us to work during any interruption to either link.

Later in 2016 each of these Internet connections will be boosted 10-fold in speed and capacity, enhancing our ability to work globally between our campuses and partner institutions.

Additionally, the connections between our Wireless network and the Internet will also be boosted and duplicated, improving the experience of students and colleagues working with mobile devices.

While this essential but beneficial work is going on, there will be inevitable disruption to Internet and WiFi services for users at all HWU campuses, for which we apologise.
