We would like to ask schools to refrain from turning off the power to the core networking equipment over the forthcoming Summer Holiday period. Core networking equipment includes routers, switches and servers, often in a wall or floor cabinet. These devices are monitored by ourselves and Updata and turning off the power results in false alarms. This could result in your school incurring a charge for an engineer visit.
Services Affected: Schools Internet, email and any service accessed via the internet
Services Not Affected: All other school systems which do not require access to the internet
When: 21st July 2017 - 6th September 2017
What You Need To Do:
If there is no alternative to powering off the communications cabinet and core equipment then please contact the Service Desk to advise us in advance
