Scheduled network maintenance on Nov. 20

University Technology Services has scheduled a network maintenance window for Sunday, Nov. 20, between 6 a.m. – 1 p.m. to increase McMaster’s network reliability and performance.

Planned activities for this day include:

  • Wireless maintenance: Wi-Fi users may notice short interruptions to service throughout the morning.
  • Burke Science Building will experience a network outage for 1-2 hours, affecting all wired, wireless and telephony in the building.
  • These buildings/areas may notice a 10-minute network outage affecting wired, wireless and telephony.
    • ABB basement and first floor east side of building
    • Chester New Hall first and second floor
    • Spinal Cord Research facility (IWC Annex)
    • University Hall
    • MARC (@ The Innovation Park)

This maintenance is part of planned monthly UTS maintenance windows necessary to perform upgrades to McMaster’s network. UTS will be using this time to update software on the university’s network infrastructure to improve overall service. In some cases, this maintenance will impact services, so users may experience instances of slow and unresponsive network.
