Essential Data Network Maintenance

July 24, 2017

IT Services are planning a number of improvements to the data network this summer, all of which aim to provide speed improvements to the internet and to increase the capacity of the Eduroam Wi-Fi service.

We will of course do everything possible to minimise any disruption. The first piece of work involves the Internet connection at Cardiff and is scheduled for Thursday 27th July. The work will be carried out between 7:30am and 8:00am and should have no impact on the service as all network traffic will automatically route through Treforest. This is for information only.

The next piece of work is for the Internet connection at Treforest and is scheduled for Tuesday 1st August. Again, the work will be carried out between 7:30am and 8:00am and will only affect the following services, the remainder will automatically route through Cardiff:

  • 'Eduroam’ Wi-Fi service
  • 'Glamguest’ Wi-Fi service
  • 'CEMET’ network service
  • 'J4 Network Security’ network service

Please contact IT Support by telephone on +44 (0) 1443 482882 or online if these arrangements cause concern or if there are significant events happening on these dates that we need to be aware of.
