ENCS will be replacing the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system that serves the Willard HUB site on Tuesday April 11th, 2017, starting at 5AM with work expected to be completed by 5PM.
In order to perform this work, all equipment at the Willard HUB site will only be supplied by NORMAL building power. This power source will not have the benefit of backup protection from a generator or a UPS. We anticipate the transfer and operation of the equipment on the NORMAL power source to NOT be service affecting and users will not see any outage.
In the event of an unplanned power event on campus to the Willard electrical feed, ECNS services would go offline for the duration of the electrical outage or until we would be able to complete the upgrade and transfer back to UPS / Emergency Power.
Services that have the potential to be affected include:
-Willard Layer 2 and 3 Network connections that are not redundant.
- VoIP, Wireless, and Backbone services in the following buildings are subject to this alert:
224 South Allen
141 West Beaver
Again, we anticipate NO service outages related to this work, only if there is an unplanned and external electrical outage while this work takes place since the equipment will not have backup power.
