Chancellor's Office Common Network Initiative (CNI)

Campus Network Upgrades

We are in the final phase of the CNI project with AT&T and Technology Services upgrading the network infrastructure of each building on campus.  We thank you for your continued patience as we near the end of this important project.  

Here is what you can expect this week:

Tuesday, February 10, 10:00 pm - 6:00 am
Planned wireless network outage
This will disrupt access to the entire campus wireless network.  (Majority of work will be completed within the first 30 minutes.)  Users will continue to have access to email, campus portal, and Blackboard as long as you are connecting from a wired device or off campus.

Thursday, February 12
6:00 am - 7:30 am     Loss of wired network access - SSU only
6:00 pm - 2:00 am     McKee Fisk Data Center Migration - disruption to all services hosted in McKee Fisk

We expect all work on the CNI project to be completed the week of February 16.

Please contact the Help Desk at 559.278.5000 if you have any questions or problems.
