Network Fiber Infrastructure Upgrade

Information Technology Services (ITS) will be upgrading the BGSU network fiber infrastructure beginning Spring Semester 2020. The goal of this project is to prepare the campus network (both wired and wireless) for increased bandwidth (speed) and reliability that will come with a future 40Gbps network upgrade.

CommScope, in partnership with Lake Erie Technologies, will be replacing the network fiber throughout campus in a commitment to uphold the warranty from the Infrastructure Project completed in 2000. Both companies are dedicated to providing the best possible service to BGSU and their customers.

Network fibers will be upgraded on a pre-determined, building-by-building schedule. During the upgrade, each impacted building will experience an outage to both the wired and wireless BGSU networks, cable TV and BGSU telephones from approximately 10 p.m. - 6 a.m, or 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. (dependent upon the schedule). The project team is working Residence life and campus police to address any security conerns related to the outages.

Please take note of your specific building's scheduled upgrade by reviewing the schedule posted below.

Additional information will be added to this page as it becomes available.
