This work has been postponed due to technical problems encountered during the prep work. We will let you know when it gets rescheduled.
Facilities will be testing the work they did on the FAB/EB P2 UPS system which drives certain parts of the buildings. The work starts at 5pm and can extend until 8pm on Friday, December 15th.
Areas that we know are affected are:
- FAB Suite 55 (includes some ETM faculty offices and the 55-17 MCECS computer lab)
- FAB suite 60 (includes the ECE Tektronix Lab, Capstone Lab, EMAG Lab, Veloce room and the CAT old-machine-room)
- FAB 140 (the CS HPC lab)
- Some Telecom closets in FAB/EB that are powered from the P2 UPS
We have been told that there could be the possibility of power “glitches” on these circuits during the testing. As a cautionary measure, we recommend people with sensitive gear in these rooms to shut them down. The CAT will shut down the labs we manage in these spaces.
We intend to keep networking gear running in closets served by the P2 UPS. Users of MCECS wired infrastructure or wireless may notice some network disruptions if any of our closet switches reboot.
We don’t expect other spaces in FAB/EB to be affected.
