Slow Network Performance – Emergency Network Maintenance @ 4:00p.m. – 4:10p.m.

FAU has been informed by our ISP about extremely high traffic load due to the recent release of Apple iOS 7. FAU has noticed a 2-3x increase in traffic load occurring around noon. Due to the increased load, many services including the Wireless network, Banner, MyFAU, Exchange, Echo360, Blackboard, and streaming media are experiencing significantly degraded performance.  OIT is preparing to implement an emergency change to relieve the performance issues at 4:00 p.m. today.  At 4:00p.m., the FAU wireless network will have a short period of downtime with a potential disruption of other services within FAU.
