|URMC Wireless Network Upgrade: Some Disruption of Service to Occur|
|Sunday, August 18 2013|
Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 20, URMC will begin upgrading the wireless network used by faculty and staff: UR_MCwireless. The work will span a few months' time, ultimately making possible faster roaming and a more secure connection.
While care has been taken to schedule the work so that it minimizes any extended disruption of wireless service, some users may experience brief outages and/or may need to reconfigure their connections.
More details follow:
o Faculty and staff who receive this notice should contact their department’s IT staff, or the Help Desk at (585) 275-3200, to reconfigure their wireless connections.
o Further instructions are posted on the ISD Intranet website (click "Get Help," then "Connecting to the URMC Network," then "Connecting From Work").
o Please note that, if faculty and staff work both at the medical center campus and offsite locations, they may receive this pop-up notice twice—and will need to reconfigure the connections twice (once at the medical center, and once at an offsite location).
Thank you in advance for your patience as we aim to deliver you a faster, more secure wireless experience.
For further questions or concerns, please contact ISD’s Help Desk at (585) 275-3200.
AIf you want to know more about health care reform, here’s a simple suggestion: Grab a cup of coffee with someone in IT.
See, reform can’t happen on paper. Its ideas are too lofty, too complex. They’re only achievable with smart technologies—and such infrastructure only gets built if a small army of really smart people scramble to help bring the vision to fruit.
