Wi-Fi upgrade on Saturday 6 July

last modified Jun 25, 2019 08:22 AM
We'll be implementing a significant migration of the University Wireless Service to a new underlying operating system and controller platform on Saturday 6 July between 08:00 and 17:00.

There will be short interruptions in service in different parts of the affected coverage area throughout this period as Wi-Fi access points (APs) are reconfigured. We'll do our best to minimise any disruption.

The new operating system will introduce extra functionality, increase AP efficiency and allow us to support the latest equipment and standards.

We've already migrated the APs on the West Cambridge site and successfully completed testing. We've also updated the University Wireless Service Console to display the correct status for these APs.

If you have any queries about this work, please contact .
