Switch Replacement Upgrades at the Davie Campus

OIT-BCS staff and the OIT network team recently completed the Switch Replacement Project for the Davie Campus.

We upgraded four switches in the Educational & Science (ES) building (one per floor), one in the FAU-BC Library, and one in the Wellness Center. All buildings on the Davie Campus now have new switches that allow for a potential 10 times faster network speed for students and faculty as well as faster connections in all the instructional classrooms.

These new switches are more stable, thus eliminating the network disconnections people experienced in certain areas. OIT-BCS will now continue with the upgrade of the switches at the Fort Lauderdale Campus.

Apollo Ramon, OIT-BCS Network Systems Administrator, coordinated the upgrade, with the support of other staff members.

The following are a few images of the work that took place:
