On Friday, April 17, 2020, the following systems will be replaced with newer equipment and therefore unavailable:
- 9:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. – All Internet access to and from the Springfield, West Plains and Mountain Grove campuses will be unavailable. Logging in to Blackboard and Office 365 from off campus will not work during this time, but the services will be available for previously logged in users.
Internet access for Commercial Network services such as those used by the eFactory downtown will not be affected. Other services not affected include phone systems, electronic door access and video surveillance systems.
To maintain the University’s technology infrastructure at the level required to ensure reliable and secure delivery of services and technologies, Information Services occasionally must update and replace equipment. Friday evening the firewall that protects the University network will be replaced with a newer model that will include additional security features as well as handle higher speeds.
